MP welcomes deal for postal services

Dales’ MP, Patrick McLoughlin, has welcomed the news of a ten-year deal between Royal Mail and the Post Office, securing the future of services

The deal follows the Government’s other measures to protect Post Office services including additional funding, new local and national contracts, a successful piloting scheme to transform many local post offices and improvements in the services offered.

Patrick said: “The Post Office is a great national asset and this Government is determined to turn the post office network around and end the years of decline.

“We are providing £1.34 billion of funding for the Post Office over the next four years.

This announcement means the future of the Post Office is secured.”
