MP fears for future of sorting office.

WREXHAM MP Ian Lucas has called for assurances over the future of Wrexham's sorting office after the Royal Mail is privatised.

The Government's privatisation proposals are expected to see various parts of the estate sold off.

Mr Lucas has written to Ministers in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and to the Royal Mail asking for assurances about the Regent Street office.

He said: "The Government is rushing through the privatisation of the Royal Mail and there is very little clarity over what will happen to properties such as sorting offices.

"The current sorting office in Wrexham is central, easily accessible and has good transport links. These factors also, unfortunately, make it valuable as a redevelopment opportunity. I want assurances that the Royal Mail - and the Government - will not seek to remove services from Wrexham town centre."
