Motion text

That this House notes that the Post Office proposes significant changes to the funding arrangements for sub-post office branches, including the complete removal of the fixed core tier payment (CTP) for the new Post Office Local and Main operating models, that removing the CTP risks undermining the financial viability of post offices, particularly in rural areas and deprived urban communities where their social value is greatest, that unplanned closures of post offices will inevitably result, undermining commitments that there will be no closures programme during this Parliament; and calls for the CTP to be reinstated to the new Post Office operating models in order to sustain the long-term future of the Post Office network, which is part of the fabric of British society.
