September 17, 2008, Post Office Ltd says:

Despite the cuts, the vast majority of residents will still live within a mile of a Post Office branch.

September 17, 2008, Laura Tarling, Network development manager, Post Office Ltd says:

These are difficult decisions which have not been taken lightly. We have considered all the comments made during the public consultation.

September 17, 2008, Andrew Selous, MP for South West Beds says:

This is a blow for very many local residents and businesses who will have to travel further and wait longer to do their post office business.

This is the wrong decision for Post Office Limited for an area which the government wants to double the number of houses in.

September 17, 2008, Kelvin Hopkins, MP for Luton North says:

This is totally unacceptable. The communities will be deprived of a vital local service and clearly no account has been taken of the mass opposition to the closures by thousands of local people and by myself.

September 26, 2008, Jaspal Sidhu, Eaton Bray sub-postmaster says:

We are sad that we are going to lose the post office, because it's a vital part of the community.
