Connarty on Post Office Card Accounts

I was catching on my emails and discovered an interesting statement by Michael Connarty, MP for Linlithgow and Falkirk East, regarding the Government's plans to scrap Post Office card accounts.

In the House of Commons on Tuesday he called on David Cairns, Under Secretary of State for Scotland, to meet with colleagues at the Department of Trade and Industry to discuss withdrawing the proposal to scrap the scheme. He said that the proposals to scrap the scheme would 'save some money for the Department for Work and Pensions, but will cause deep offence and concern to the pensioners in our society.'

Strangely he has votely loyally with the Government over every post office proposal put forward including these interesting divisions from 15 May 2002 and the 24 May 2004 which appears to be contrary to what he is saying this week.
