Local Post Offices under threat 17/06/2006

Your local Post Office is under threat. Over the last 20 years, post offices have been closing at a rate of over 300 a year. Under NuLab 4,000 branches have closed.

NuLab has now announced that it will scrap key contracts for pension and benefit payments using the Post Office Card Account, worth £1 billion of income for post offices.

The future looks bleak for post offices, both urban and rural. Third Way has called for:-

The retention of Post Office Card Accounts for Benefit Payments
