Post offices are hugely important as they provide a vital service to local people and should be seen as community hubs, giving access to a range of local and central government services (such as DVLA services).

However, whilst the Government have repeatedly stated that the Post Office should be the “front office of government” sadly these words have yet to be matched by action as the loss of the green giro last year showed. The Government should be working to ensure that the range of services and commercial activities at post office branches is expanded, as that is what is needed to ensure the long-term future of the Post Office network and its place at the heart of communities across the country. 

I have written to both the Transport Secretary and the Cabinet Office Minister to raise local residents’ concerns on these issues.
