Snippet Contents:

As my colleagues stated, Sinn Féin will not support the Bill. An increase in the price of postage stamps was one of many recommendations made in the recent report by Bobby Kerr on the development of the post office network business. However, the Kerr report makes a number of other positive recommendations which the Bill does not reflect or address. Sinn Féin will argue against the Bill because raising postage costs on consumers without first developing a broader range of services at post offices will be counter-productive and will not serve any purpose. Significantly increasing prices before the development of an expanded An Post service could have serious consequences for many post offices, particularly in rural communities.
It is clear, even from the Bill, that the Government does not want to know about rural Ireland because rural Deputies find themselves again fighting for the survival of rural Ireland.
