PRESS STATEMENT FROM RORY STEWART MP ON PENRITH POST OFFICE
I am strongly against the “relocation” of Penrith Post Office to WHSmith. I am very supportive of Penrith Post Office and do not want to see any of its services downgraded. Post Offices are vital to our local communities.
I welcome the news of the beginning of a six-week consultation period during which I will be submitting my own response, and I would urge all of those who use the current site to do the same. I will also be expressing my concerns directly to representatives from the Post Office when I meet with them next week.
