I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way; he is being very generous with his time. I share concerns about the consultation process, but does he share my anger about the fact that Tory-controlled Swindon borough council has not taken part in the consultation exercise, and did not attend any of the meetings held by Postwatch or the Post Office? The Conservatives in Swindon are now jumping on the bandwagon, but have made no representations to the Post Office or to Postwatch about the closures in my constituency.

Don't you just love Anne Snelgrove, she writes in the local press and gets on bandwagons including being against post office closures and when she has the chance to support a Tory Vote delaying closure she as usual votes with the Government. As we have said before Anne and Michael Wills will be voted out next time. They both know this. The public have had enough of two MPs never once voting against the Government.
