South Bank Royal Mail Delivery Office

Volume 548: debated on Tuesday 10 July 2012

The Royal Mail proposes to close the South Bank delivery office in my constituency and move its activities to its Cannon Park office in Middlesbrough. This will cause great inconvenience to local residents and will result in job losses in a hard-pressed area.

I present a petition from 3,420 of my constituents which states:

The Petition of residents of Redcar Constituency,

Declares that the Petitioners are opposed to the closure of the South Bank Delivery Service.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to ask Royal Mail to listen to residents and reconsider proposals to close the South Bank Delivery Office.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
