Post Office Confusion Continues
The usual Post Office confusion is continuing. The main problem that Post Office Limited has is that they don't get a central contribution to overheads from the smaller Sub-Post offices. Hence they want to close them down.
There are a small number (perhaps 5% of those closed) that themselves are not viable, but if you run a sub-post office in a shop it makes a smaller turnover viable.
Until this issue is resolved we will continue to have the number of offices driving down to around 4,500. For some reason the central costs are quite high. All of these needs to be reviewed.
