Order of Business
-----of 1,200 post offices will face closure in the new plan. It is in the programme for Government. The Taoiseach knows the problems we have. There are solutions. As postmasters, we are not looking for a handout from the Government. It is no such thing. We are not coming to ask the Government to bail us out and give us money. What we are saying is that community banking should be introduced into post offices. It worked in Japan, Germany and New Zealand.
