Post Office Closures In Wansbeck

EDM number 2129 in 2007-08, proposed by Denis Murphy on 22/07/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Postal services and Service industries.

That this House is extremely concerned at the Post Office closure programme announced by Post Office Ltd; notes with great concern the three proposed Post Office closures of Francesville in Scotland Gate, College in Ashington and St Mary's Field in Morpeth; is further concerned that no account has been taken of the effects these closures would have on the most vulnerable people in those three communities who rely on the services provided by the Post Office and will have a considerable distance to travel to alternative post offices which are not always served by a regular bus service; further notes that the nearest post office to St Mary's Field is scheduled to close on 1st October and that a replacement site has not yet been found despite representations from the hon. Member for Wansbeck, local councils and others; and calls upon the Government urgently to intervene to halt the current closure programme.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
