Motion text

That this House is aware that the Department for Work and Pensions has recently announced its intention to close the Post Office Card Account in 2010; believes such a strategy to be both wrong and shortsighted as it will inevitably lead to difficulties for the most vulnerable in their communities through the loss of much of the Post Office network; and calls upon the Government to cease its seemingly endless pursuit of tactics highly favourable to high street banks and instead to recognise the real value and worth of post and sub-post offices whose activities are central to local community life.
