To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

The petition of certain citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the decision of Australia Post to close the Strathpine Post Office at 481 Gympie Road, Strathpine, Queensland.

The decision to close will severely inconvenience the local residents and businesses in terms of the service to the community the Post Office provides. The elderly, disabled, and local businesses will be particularly affected. Post Offices are also taking on many of the banking services and this may be particularly important as many of the banking branches in the region are closing.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to:

Reverse the Australia Post decision and ensure that the Strathpine Post Office remains open for at least the next ten years.

by Mr Dutton (from 1,835 citizens).
