Sharing information on stakeholder management


Item 2 – Project Update

Next steps/ timetable

Eversheds confirmed that the process of formulating appropriate industry-wide commitment statements to the provision of wholesale cash is underway, and they are currently finalising a plan to deliver these.

Target publication date

The Bank raised that it could be beneficial to publish the public update document on the 15 December to align with the Cash Action Group (CAG) announcement. This would provide a joined up view of the industry commitments to the provision of both wholesale and retail cash.

The Bank explained that Natalie Ceeney, who is leading the CAG work, was supportive of this approach.

WDSG members agreed to target the 15 December for publication, provided the current work had progressed sufficiently.

Item 3 – WDSG Communications Review Group Update

The Bank provided an update on the work of the WDSG Comms Review Group, and explained that a revised version of the public update has been circulated to attendees for review ahead of the next meeting which is scheduled for 18 November.

Item 4 – Review Action Log

Actions were reviewed and closed where applicable.
