I beg to ask leave to present a petition:
To the Honourable The Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of sub-post office users in Halifax, West Yorkshire sheweth that they are against the removal by the Government of their right to receive pension and benefit payments at local post offices. Wherefore, we request that your Honourable House request the Government to give people the right to choose to receive pension and benefit payments at their local post office; recognising the benefits of this to individual and community.
Nearly 10,000 people in Halifax have signed the petition.
And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, etc.
