What have the Lib Dems achieved in government - part 10

The final part of my round up of Liberal Democrat achievements in government looks at local services and, in particular, post offices.

Post office branches are at the heart of many local communities. Across the UK, the lst Labour government closed more than 7000. And before that the Tory government of Margaret Thatcher and John Major closed more than 5000.

Thanks to Lib Dem minister Ed Davey, every single post office branch has been safeguarded for the next 10 years at least.
