At this very late stage in the process, when a date is looming, it seems that would be the most practical way to safeguard the network of post offices up and down the country and to prevent a large number of them from closing. Does she support that initiative? Will she provide the necessary €17 million in annual funding to An Post to ensure the post office network is safeguarded?
