Volume 577: debated on Tuesday 18 March 2014

The proposed closure of Crown Post Offices in Anglesey (Ynys Môn)

It is with great pleasure that I present this petition signed by over 3,000 of my constituents. In 2009 Post Office Ltd made it clear that it had no intention to relocate or outsource its services from the two Crown post offices on Anglesey as no other suitable major retail brand existed on the high streets. In the closure programme of sub-post offices, the importance of the Crown offices was highlighted due to their location and integration with other services. This situation has not changed.

The petition states:

The Petition of the residents of Anglesey,

Declares that they wish to preserve the Crown Post Office in both Holyhead and Llangefni to retain the safety, convenience and services of this vital resource to the island’s community.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons protect both Crown Post Offices from closure and from potential franchising.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
