Statement by Brendan Griffin TD (FG) Kerry
Wednesday, June 26th 2013.
KERRY Fine Gael TD, Brendan Griffin, has today (Wednesday) warmly welcomed the decision by the Department of Social Protection to award An Post a further two year contract to provide over the counter cash transactions.
Deputy Griffin said it was good news for the country’s thousands of Postmasters and their staff and the millions of customers who use Post Offices.
“This is very important for the Post Office network and I hope to see more Government business available through the Post Office network. Motor tax, water charges, driver licenses and many other transactions could be done through the Post Office, helping to protect their long-term sustainability and simultaneously protecting a vital cog in the social wheel.”
