Post Office Card Account

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

I am pleased to present a further 1,000 or so signatures from the people of north Wales to add to the 4 million that were presented last week in respect of the Post Office card account. The petition was gathered by me and my Assembly Member colleague, Janet Ryder.

The petitioners declare:

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of users of Post Office card accounts.

Declares that the Petitioners believe that individuals should have the choice to continue to receive their pension, family allowance or benefits paid weekly in cash, at their local Post Office through the Post Office Card Account. The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Department for Work and Pensions to reconsider its decision not to renew the contract for Post Office Card Accounts.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
