started this petition to
House of Commons
to close York’s Lendal Post Office and open a franchise in WHSmith are not supported
by the people of York.
The Post Office has served residents, businesses and visitors for over 130 years. The move will put the jobs of well trained
and efficient staff at risk, will have a detrimental impact on the city centre and
will see another public asset flogged off.
The petitioners therefore
request that the House of Commons urges the Government
to put an immediate stop to
this franchising plan, and to work with stakeholders to
develop a new strategy that sees the Post Office at Lendal safeguarded for the
future and retained in public ownership.
