Rural stakeholders are being urged to respond to a consultation on Post Office services and accessibility. The consultation closes on 21st December and aims to inform the government’s next state aid application to Brussels.
Under European Commission rules, evidence must be provided for the level of funding that government gives to Post Office Ltd.
The government is asking stakeholders to tell them what they expect from the post office network. Responses to the consultation will be used to determine the level of funding provided to the post office after the existing agreement with Post Office Ltd ends in 2018.
