That this House expresses concern at the proposed franchising of Willesden's main Post Office branch, which has served local residents since 1894; notes that this will result in the closure of service desks, resulting in more queues; further notes that the Willesden Post Office branch was announced as the best performing branch in the UK for the sale of financial service products in February 2006; recognises the essential services that local Post Offices provide to their communities; further recognises the importance of the accessibility and convenience of local Post Office branches to communities, and particularly the elderly and disabled; and urges Post Office Ltd to review the unpopular proposal to franchise Willesden's main Post Office.
