Post Offices In Brent

EDM number 1209 in 2007-08, proposed by Sarah Teather on 18/03/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Postal services and Service industries.

That this House expresses its deep regret at Post Office Ltd's intention to close six post offices in Brent; notes that post offices play a valuable role in local communities by offering a vital lifeline for those most vulnerable; further notes that any closures will mean increased waiting times at those post offices that remain open and that local people will have to travel a lot further to reach their nearest branch; expresses dismay that when Labour came to power Brent had 40 post offices and after the proposed closures it will be left with just 24; applauds the Willesden and Brent Times and the Wembley Observer for their campaigns to keep Brent's post offices open; and calls on the Government actively to seek ways to make post offices thrive in Brent rather than constantly seeking their closure.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
