The government says it understands the concerns of people in south Devon over the closure of a popular post office.
In a special Commons debate, Kevin Foster, the Conservative MP for Torbay, told her local people wanted Torre Post Office in Torquay to stay where is it, rather than being moved to an alternative site.
He said: "General accessibility is better rather than the proposed [new] location, because it is not just about how you get in and out of the shop.
"It is within walking distance for many more customers and businesses [where it is], its bus stop is also served by one of the most frequent buses in the bay, and wheelchair access is available."
However, Business Minister Margot James said the post office may not have a long-term future.
