Post Office vote result

Sadly it looks like the Conservative attempts to stop the Post Office closure program in Parliament has been defeated, but by only 20 votes as Labours majority collapsed in the House of Commons. As Conservative Shadow Business Secretary Alan Duncan said afterwards:

"The hunt will now be on for all those Labour MPs who have pretended to support their local Post Office and then done a runner when they had a chance to make a real difference."

The fight to save local post offices goes on on the ground...
