Mannin: Government defer post Office Closures as Anger Grows

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

The Isle of Man government has deferred for three months a decision on closing the two main post offices on the Island in Ramsey and Douglas.

The move to close the branches caused wide ranging protests, from Trade Unions and members of the public.

The Nationalist Party Mec Vannin also voiced its opposition saying:

“Both facilities are integral to both the social and commercial cohesion of the areas they serve and the idea that they can some how be accommodated in nearby private sector retail premises beggars’ belief.

The underhand manner in which this decision was made also gives cause for concern as both staff (their Unions) and the public were taken by surprise at the announcement.”
