The British public is using cash less, preferring to take advantage of new digital payment methods. In this video, Sir Mark Boleat explains trends in the use of cash and analyses issues arising from the move towards a cashless society.
Overview

The market is changing rapidly. Within a few years many people will carry no cash and many more retailers will not accept cash. The appropriate policy response is to seek to ensure access to cash for those who need it and to help remove the barriers to using electronic means of payment for those reluctant to use them.
