Post office decline is a natonal disgrace
Local MP Brian Binley has condemned the Labour Government as a disgrace following today’s announcement that 2,500 more post offices will close.
Mr Binley said:
‘This is an organisation of small businesses and today’s announcement has demonstrated yet again that this Government knows nothing about small businesses.
What a missed opportunity!
The post offices, especially those in rural areas, should be seen as a social service. Why haven’t the Government found new ways to grow these small businesses; internet chat rooms, new services, front end information for government and local government services, new products – all of these could be used to develop services instead of just the opposite, withdrawing revenue and services from them.
It is a national disgrace that we are diminishing this asset.’
