SNP CONFERENCE CALLS FOR ACTION TO SAVE OUR POST OFFICE

15th October 2019

At SNP Conference on Sunday, my motion on Post Offices (seconded by Gavin Newlands MP) was passed by acclaim. Our Post Offices must remain in public hands and receive proper support and investment from the UK Government which has adopted a policy of managed decline so they can justify privatising it. Post Offices are a key part of our communities and they must remain.

Our motion also called for:
✉️ The re-nationalisation of Royal Mail;
💰 Proper remuneration for Sub-Postmasters;
👑 Protection of Crown branches and opposition to closures;
✊ Trade Union representation on the Post Office executive
board;
🏛 Post Offices to become hubs for banking and Government
services;
⚖️ A review of the UK Government’s legal strategy in the
Horizon case.
