MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, has today welcomed a deal that will see the Post Office continue to deliver tax disc and driving licence services.
The deal – which means that Motorists will be able to tax their cars and apply for or renew driving licences at the Post Office for at least seven more years – was announced today by the Coalition Government.
After the announcement, Lynne Featherstone commented:
“I’ve had many letters from constituents who were worried that their Post Office was in danger of losing this vital service, so I am extremely pleased that the Post Office bid has been successful.
“Post Offices are a vital part of our communities here in Hornsey and Wood Green. We lost 5 Offices under Labour’s ruthless and shameful closure programme. But this news, along with the Coalition’s commitment to invest £1bn in the Post Office network, helps to protect the Offices we have left, and put them on a more sustainable footing for the future.
“This news also furthers the Coalition’s aim to see Post Offices as a front office for Government and I am pleased that this contract means that the Post Offices will be able to bid for other services in the future.”
