Commenting on an e mail received today from Post Office Ltd to the CEO of East Riding of Yorkshire Council and St. Mary’s ward Councillors, announcing the start of a 6 week consultation process to close Beverley Crown Post Office, Cllr Denis Healy said:

“The letter that we have received today from Post Office bosses shows beyond doubt that their so-called “consultation” is an absolute sham.

Put simply, they are saying that they welcome people’s views on their proposal to franchise Beverley Crown Post Office to WHSmith, as long as people don’t tell them they shouldn’t be doing it.

It’s a consultation, but they only want to consult on the things they want to hear about, and they are saying very clearly that they “are not seeking feedback” on the principle of closing the Crown Post office and franchising its services to WHSmith.

In other words, it’s a done deal, so don’t waste your time talking to them if you just want to tell them that they shouldn’t be doing it.

To tell the public at the start of a consultation that their minds are closed to any other outcome than closure is as about as arrogant as it gets.

These self important Post Office bosses are running a public service, responsible to Government, and it’s about time that they were cut down to size by ministers.

Our petition to keep the hands of this ailing retailer off Beverley Post Office, has thousands of names, and I hope to be presenting this to our MP to pass onto Ministers during the coming weeks. We have cross party and union support for saving Beverley Post Office, and there is to be a day of public support on the morning of Saturday 19th January in Beverley Town Centre.”
