    Welsh Liberal Democrat Conference has passed a motion calling on the Government, in both the Assembly and Westminster, to take steps to preserve local post offices. The motion, tabled by Cardiff Liberal Democrats was passed unanimously.

    "Local Post Offices are facing some stark financial choices" said Cardiff West Liberal Democrat campaigner Alison Goldsworthy. "The Labour Welsh Assembly Government has offered some limited assistance to Welsh Post Offices but it doesn't go far enough, and offers small crumb of comfort to those punished by the policies of the Labour Westminster Government. In my own area of Cardiff West, more than 25% of post offices have closed since 2002."
