Post Office Card Account (No. 3)

EDM number 2449 in 2007-08, proposed by Bob Spink on 10/11/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Benefits administration and Postal services.

That this House understands and values the special position that post offices hold in society; believes that the Post Office card account, which is used by four million people to collect pensions and benefits, is essential to the future of many post offices and that, according to the Treasury Select Committee, around 3,000 more post offices may close if the account is removed from them; and calls on the Government to make a decision to keep the card account with the Post Office as a matter of urgency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
