The petition of 307 residents of the village of Ward Green in the constituency of Barnsley, West and Penistone declares:

That the proposed closure of the village Post Office by Post Office Ltd will have a negative impact on the community because of the inconvenience caused particularly to elderly residents.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons ask that the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry intervene and stop the proposed closure.
And the Petitioners remain etc.

To lie upon the Table.
