Fleet Financial Group said Monday that it is revising its Federal Reserve Board application to acquire National Westminster Bank's U.S. unit.

The Fed is "asking for additional information, which we are supplying quickly," a Fleet spokesman said. "We don't anticipate any significant delays as a result."

Sources said the Fed's questions are routine and center on the company's plans for consolidating branches. Fleet has said it will close 30 of Natwest's 300 offices. The deal was announced last December and is expected to close in the second quarter.
