Written answers (Question to Communications)

Insofar as plans for the development of the post office network are concerned, I refer to the reply to Priority Question No. 111 [19991/14] of 6 May 2014. The position is unchanged.

The issue of post office closures is an operational matter for the board and management of An Post and one in which I have no statutory function. I will ask An Post to respond directly to the Deputy in relation to Erne Street Upper post office.
