Concern Over Sanquhar Post Office

That the Parliament notes with concern the recent call by the Royal Mail to close the mail delivery office in Sanquhar;

notes and welcomes the decision by the Post Office not to close it in the interim, but understands that the threat remains as the request can be repeated; understands that Sanquhar Post Office, which marked its tercentennial anniversary in 2012, is the world's oldest working post office; believes that it would be detrimental to the town if it was to close, with the loss of four jobs and the title, and urges the Royal Mail to reconsider its position.
