Post Office (Bromley)

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 27 June 2007

My petition relates to the proposal by the Post Office to close the main post office in Bromley town centre and transfer its activities to an upstairs floor of the local WH Smith—a matter of great concern to people in my constituency and in surrounding areas, including the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Beckenham (Mrs. Lait), who is present.

The petition states:

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of the residents of Bromley and the surrounding area and visitors to the London Borough of Bromley.

Declares that the Petitioners are extremely concerned by the Post Office Ltd. decision to close the East Street crown post office and relocate services to WH Smith and believe that this will lead to a greatly reduced service and result in serious access problems especially for the disabled and elderly.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons make clear to the Government and Post Office Ltd. the importance of the East Street Post Office to the local community and the benefit that it currently provides.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
