End to Labour's Post Office Dithering Welcomed

The contract to run the Post Office Card Account (POCA) is to be awarded to Post Office Ltd. There was speculation that the Government were going to award this to another company, threatening an extra wave of Post Office closures.

Making more of POCA is part of the Conservative action plan for Post Offices, announced this summer.

Richard Normington commented, “The whole contract process produced unnecessary worry and destabilisation at a time when local Post Offices needed certainty. This was the right decision, but the dithering was damaging. Britain's postal service deserves better.”
