I have a petition to present on behalf of my constituents in the Oxbridge and Parkfield area of my constituency. It has been signed by more than 3,000 local people in 10 working days. They perceive their post office as the heart of their community and wish that the Post Office management would think again and leave operational a successful business—the Oxbridge Lane post office.
The petition states:
The Petition of those concerned about the proposed closure of Oxbridge Lane post office,
Declares the importance of this Post Office to the local community.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform to instruct Post Office Ltd. to keep Oxbridge Lane post office open.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.,
