North East Scotland Post Office Closures

EDM number 1493 in 2007-08, proposed by Malcolm Bruce on 06/05/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Postal services and Service industries.

That this House notes that by the end of May 2008 the Post Office will publish details of the post offices in the North East of Scotland it is proposing to close; and calls on the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform to recognise the damage these closures cause and the scale of the resentment across the UK at similar closures and, to prove they are listening, to halt the closure plan and develop alternative proposals to invest in the network and increase the range of services available through local post offices.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
