Fighting for Post Offices

The UK Government will help to define one of the big issues for the 2007 Welsh Assembly elections today when it announces the imminent closure of 3,000 Post Offices across the UK. Many of these closures will be in Wales.

The Western Mail considers that the decision to postpone the outcome of the consultation on these closures until after the May elections will assist the Labour Party. I am not so sure. The uncertainty will enable the opposition to campaign to save every Post Office, whilst also highlighting the impact of the loss of the Post Office Card Account on urban branches.

This approach to the Post Office network is unacceptable and we will be fighting it tooth and nail.
