§ Mr. David Amess (Southend, West) (Con)
The announcement of the closure of a further five post offices in Southend, West has widespread despair in the community that I represent, which contains the greatest number of people aged between 100 and 112 in the country. The petition contains 500 signatures and was organised by Mr. R. Patel.
The petition states:
Many are concerned about the proposed closure of the Earls Hall Parade branch of the Post Office, Earls Hall Parade.The Petitioners therefore request the House of Commons urge the Government to do all in its power to prevent the Post Office from closure.
