“If we don’t get these services these post offices are in a heck of a lot of trouble so this is about survivability for us,” he said on Tuesday.

“We’re pushing through the door and I would love that door to open up a little bit more,” he said.

Mr Fahour warned letter volumes continued to decline, citing a 20 per cent drop in Christmas cards in 2015.
