HC Deb 09 June 2004 vol 422 cc375-6

7 pm

Tom Cox (Tooting) (Lab)

I wish to present a petition from constituents expressing deep concern about the Post Office's proposals to close foul post offices in the Tooting area of the London borough of Wandsworth. I fully support their opposition. The concern exists because the closures follow closures hat took place last year. As we all know, such closures inevitably affect local communities—people of all ages who use and greatly value a key public service. They also have a real effect on businesses that regularly use the services provided by local post offices.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons calls on her Majesty's government to halt any further closure of such Post Office branches until there is a full review of the effect such closures have on a community.

To lie upon the Table.
