Major investment in Post Offices announced

The BBC reports:

More than 6,000 branches of the Post Office are to be revamped by the government in the next three years.

An investment programme costing £1.34bn will modernise the sub-branches…

The government repeated its pledge that there would be no further closures of post office branches…

The postal affairs minister, Norman Lamb, said: “This government has made a commitment that there will be no closure programme and invested £1.34bn to secure the long term future of the Post Office.

“However, change is needed to secure the long term future of post offices; the pilots are showing the new ‘locals’ and ‘mains’ models are popular with consumers and sub-postmasters.”…

George Thomson, general secretary of the National Federation of Sub-postmasters, said: “This investment will bring significant benefits to customers, communities and local businesses right across the UK.”
