Post Office Card climb down (From the archive)

November 13, 2008

I am pleased that the Government has seen sense and announced that the Post Office will keep the Post Office Card Account (POCA), even though they voted against it earlier this week.

It should not have been so difficult for the Government to see that this is a vital service for vulnerable people and vital to the future of post offices.

Many constituents have written to me about saving the POCA and I am delighted that our campaign has paid off.
