RURAL post offices are supported by the Government, an MP said as he began a tour of local branches.

Conservative MP for Stroud Neil Carmichael said he was reassured after receiving a commitment from House of Commons leader Andrew Lansley that there would not be a repeat of the closure programme seen under the previous Labour government.

"The post office is a vital part of communities and has long provided a platform for essential and everyday services," said Mr Carmichael, on a visit to the Newtown Post Office in Sharpness.

"I am dedicated to ensuring local residents can easily access the services they need," he said.
