I present a petition of more than 4,000 of my constituents who have expressed their concern about the potential closure of post offices.
The petition states:
The Petition of the users of post offices in the constituency of Mid-Dorset and North Poole—[Interruption.]
Order. We still have business to conduct. May I ask Members who are leaving to do so quickly and quietly?
The petition continues:
Declares that post offices are a vital part of the social fabric of the local community and must be preserved. The Petitioners rely on the important services provided by their local post office.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support local post offices and not to close them.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
To lie upon the Table.
