Post Office closures

Earlier this week a long debate was held in the House of Commons regarding the programme to close over a thousand post offices countrywide. The Conservative motion to halt the programme of closures was defeated by just 20 votes. A number of Ministers campaigned publicly against the proposed closures in their constituencies and yet voted in favour of them in the Commons.

Stephen Ladyman voted against the Conservative motion while Roger Gale voted in favour.
