Post Office job losses show that it is at crisis point and that the UK Government is putting yet another valued public service on a pathway to privatisation via managed decline. The UK Government must commit to increasing the subsidy to the Post Office in the upcoming spending review.
So many communities and groups rely on the Post Office’s services – especially the elderly. As banks leave high street, Post Offices play a crucial role in the access to cash.
Post Offices have been especially essential during the Covid pandemic providing services and support locally. The UK Government cannot allow the Post Office network to decline further and deprive communities of these services.
