Minnis Bay Post Office (December 6th 2007)

North Thanet`s MP, Roger Gale, has today described as "uncaring and socially irresponsible" the Post Office decision to close the sub post office in Minnis Bay.

"This organisation has ignored the representations made at a face-to-face meeting" says the MP "together with the many individual letters and parliamentary petition that was presented on behalf of residents of Minnis Bay.  The result will mean that many elderly people will suffer further inconvenience and isolation.  The entire Birchington area is now left with one postal outlet and I do not regard that as a satisfactory provision for so many people.  It is clear that the Post Office has abandoned its remit to provide a genuine public service and that the combination of supine management and Government policy of removal of business is turning "network reinvention" into a charade.

I shall now myself review the position to see if there is any other avenue of representation open to my constituents."
