Motion text

That this House notes the recent consultations undertaken by Post Office Ltd into the closure of Crown post offices across Wales; further notes that in Aberystwyth the Crown Post Office was closed despite strong local opposition; recognises that closures have occurred throughout many communities in Wales despite local opposition; notes that the Communication Workers Union have stated that they are unaware of a single case where public consultation has overturned the Post Office's proposals in recent years; believes that the current consultation system is shambolic and does not take into account the views of local people over the closures; and calls on Post Office Ltd to ensure that future consultations take local opposition seriously.
