[S1M-638] Decision Time — 8 Mar 2000 at 17:03
This looks like the vote on S1M-638
The description in the bulletin on 2000-03-07 is:
*S1M-638 Fiona Hyslop: Role of Post Offices—That the Parliament notes the important role played by post offices and sub-post offices in the economic and social fabric of many of our communities and notes with concern proposals from Her Majesty’s Government to change the method of benefit payments (Automated Credit Transfer Scheme to banks) which could result in the closure of sub-post offices and the impact this could have on the social inclusion targets of the Scottish Executive; further notes that recent announcements to allow some cash payments to continue to be paid from post offices will be too little too late to alleviate this serious situation, and therefore calls upon the Scottish Executive to make urgent representations on this issue to Her Majesty’s Government in order to defend the interests of our urban and rural communities and urges it to be proactive in making representations to other relevant agencies to ensure the continuance and development of post offices in Scotland and the improvement of the availability of financial services in poorer communities in Scotland. Supported by: Alex Neil*, Bruce Crawford*, Colin Campbell*
