Post Office Debate 10/3/20

The important role of Post Offices in our communities, the issue of Post Office closures, and the difficulties faced by many folk in taking on or sustaining a Post Office as a business are issues of concern to many people in East Renfrewshire.


Post Offices provide a vital means, alongside the obvious and important postal services, for those who prefer to deal in cash, for older folk and those who cannot easily get about to withdraw funds when banks are closing across the local area.


I was glad that I could contribute to the debate hosted by Marion Fellows MP on the future of the post offices and add my voice to those calling for greater support and guarantees over the systems required to ensure that remaining post offices are sustainable.
