Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Patricia Ryan (Kildare South, Sinn Fein)
According to page 63 of the programme for Government, "This Government believes An Post has untapped potential to do more and make a further significant contribution across many areas of public, business and community life in Ireland." What are the Government's plans to prevent further post office closures? Post offices are essential services in our rural towns and villages. I recently found out from helping a constituent that just three post offices in County Kildare and one in County Laois provide the free address service to homeless people. Will this service be expanded to more post offices to make it easier to access?
