Today, Dame Anne welcomed the news that the Post Office has secured the DVLA’s Front Office Counter Services contract and has also been named by the Department for Work & Pensions as a provider for its new framework contract to offer identity assurance services.
These contracts are a ringing endorsement for the Post Office and will help to ensure that they are able to continue to develop a modern Post Office network in local communities.
Following the announcement, Dame Anne said: “The Post Office provides a vital service to local people and I am delighted to see additional services being introduced into Post Office branches, which will ensure that the network has a secure long-term future at the heart of our communities.
I know how hard subpostmasters campaigned for the DVLA contract and I received a number of postcards from my constituents. I am pleased that their hard work in delivering essential services and supporting local communities has been recognised in this way. ”
