I am very concerned about Post Office Ltd's proposal to franchise Wakefield’s crown post office on Northgate. Families and businesses in Wakefield rely on the full post office services that the branch provides and long-serving members of staff are seeing their jobs put at risk. I called on the Business Secretary to intervene to protect our local post office and our high street in an early day motion, and I hope that you will add your voices to the campaign by signing my petition.
We the undersigned call upon the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills to intervene to protect Wakefield crown post office jobs and services. The branch provides important services to our community and its loss would put local jobs under threat, as well as dealing another blow to our high street.
