Future of the Broadway Post Office Hangs in the Balance

November 8, 2004 12:00 AM

Tom Brake is to seek a parliamentary debate on the future of the Broadway Post Office following the Post Office's decision to close the Stafford Road and Croydon Road branches.

He will also be tabling an Early Day Motion to seek the support of other MPs in the fight to save this key branch.

Tom Brake explained, "We've lost two post offices but there is an outside chance we could save the third. The Post Office must recognise that they are not just a business, they provide a key public service, which many vulnerable and elderly people depend upon. The Broadway branch is central to that local community, and its loss, would be a real body blow to residents and businesses."

The Post Office is still considering the future of the Broadway branch after representations from local residents, Postwatch and Tom Brake MP.

Tom Brake received over 140 questionnaires from residents who wanted to keep the Broadway open.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
