Closure of Rhyl Crown Post Office

Volume 563: debated on Tuesday 21 May 2013

I wish to present the following petition to Parliament on behalf of the residents of Rhyl and the Vale of Clwyd, who are totally opposed to the proposal by Post Office Ltd to franchise Rhyl Crown Post Office. They believe that the proposal will severely damage the provision of services in Rhyl, especially to the elderly, and they call on Post Office Ltd to withdraw its proposal and to retain Rhyl Crown Post Office.

The petition states:

The Petition of those concerned about the proposed closure of Rhyl Crown Post Office,

Declares that Rhyl Crown Post Office should remain within the Crown Network and not become a franchise. The Petitioners believe that the proposal for a franchise will severely damage the provision of services in Rhyl.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Minister of State for Business and Enterprise to protect much-loved public services.

And the Petitioners remain, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
