The London Assembly’s health and public services committee will be scrutinising whether the closures will stabilise London’s post offices financially and whether or not there are likely to be more closures.
Among those fielding questions will be Post Office planning manager Nick Beale and network area planning adviser Ketul Patel as well chairman of London Councils Merrick Cockell (Con).
London has been one of the hardest hit regions by the two rounds of post office closures, with 490 post offices axed in the last six years, according to London Councils.
The cull has left London with fewer branches per head than the country as a whole and London Councils has warned that many of the most vulnerable people in London rely on post offices to access cash and pay bills.
Mr Cockell said: “This sustained attack on the lifeblood of the capital’s high streets, the local post office, is short sighted, senseless and potentially damaging to both local businesses and London’s most vulnerable people.”
