Cash injection will ‘help secure future of post offices’

A NEW Government deal will help secure the long-term future of post offices in the Daventry district, MP Chris Heaton-Harris has said.

At present plans are in place for some parts of the Royal Mail to be privatised which could put post office’s income in jeopardy.

However, the Government has said it will be providing £1.34 billion of funding to modernise the post office network.

Mr Heaton-Harris said: “This move will be putting quite a lot of Government business into post offices and should.

“It doesn’t guarantee that there won’t be any closures but with the business being put in post offices should be able to operate a healthy business.”
