I am grateful for the opportunity to present this petition from my constituents who object to the closure of two sub-post offices in my constituency.

This is the humble petition of Councillor Ronald Feldman and others of like disposition. They are concerned

"That proposals to close our local post offices, Alwoodley Park and Sandhill Parade, would cause a vital part of our community to break down; that these post offices provide a good postal service and social role in our community.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House shall urge the Post Office Ltd to reconsider its decision to close local branches and make sure that this vital link to the Community is not lost.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, etc."

To lie upon the Table.
