Don Foster MP*


“Appalling!” is how Bath’s MP, Don Foster, described the news of proposals to close a raft of Post Offices in Bath.

Main ImagePost Office Ltd. is launching a consultation with a view to closure of 6 branches in the city.
• Charles Street
• Whiteway
• Combe Down
• Bathwick Hill (already closed)
• St. James Sq.

Commenting Don said,

“These closures would be a massive blow to the city, its communities and residents.”

“I lay the blame for this terrible news firmly and directly at the door of the Government – their deliberate policies have meant that the trade for so many community Post Offices has been run down to an extent where closure becomes almost an inevitability.”

“The Government talk about “sustainable communities,” but that’s just paying lip service, when they are actually encouraging people to ditch their pension book and receive benefits directly into bank accounts.
