Motion text

That this House expresses concern at the recently announced closure of nine HM Revenue and Customs offices across Wales, including the office at Aberystwyth, which was scheduled to stay open under the original proposals; believes that compliance staff in Aberystwyth have not been given the opportunity of fully responding to the consultation as they were unaware of the threat to their jobs; notes the importance of public sector employment at a time when many private sector jobs are being lost and acknowledges the Government's moratorium on Jobcentre Plus closures; and calls on the Government to postpone closures and staffing cuts until a full reassessment of the impact on local economies has been made, and staff who were not aware that they would lose their jobs have been able to respond to a further consultation.
