Post Office Closures (Northamptonshire)

Volume 470: debated on Monday 21 January 2008

It is a great pleasure to present a petition organised by Great Doddington parish council, with more than 600 names.

The petition states:

The Humble Petition of residents of Great Doddington and surrounding areas,

Sheweth

That we oppose the closure of our Post Office in Great Doddington. Such a closure would cause an immense amount of hardship, especially for elderly, disabled and other vulnerable groups. It would require the numerous customers of Great Doddington Post Office to travel more than two miles along a major and busy road to the nearest Post Office

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House urges the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform to halt the closure of Great Doddington Post Office.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.
