Post Office Closures (Surrey)

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

About three years ago Carshalton and Wallington suffered post office closures in Banstead road, Westmead road, Stanley Park road and Plough lane, to name but a few. Now a further round of closures is threatened, with disastrous consequences. Local people are up in arms.

The petition states:

The Petition of Carshalton and Wallington residents,

Declares their opposition to the Government’s programme of Post Office closures, in particular the proposed closure of Post Offices at Seymour Rd, Bishopsford Road, Wrythe Lane, Carshalton Road, and Gander Green Lane.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to find alternative business for Post Offices to enable them to continue providing an invaluable service to residents, particularly those who are elderly or have a disability.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
