A BARNSLEY MP is celebrating after local post offices were told they'd earn a share of a multi-million deal with the DVLA.

The Post Office nationwide has won a £450 million deal with the DVLA to continue providing driving licenses and tax discs for the next 10 years.

Michael said some local post officers rely on DVLA jobs for up to 20 per cent of their incomes.

He said: "Post Offices are hugely important as they provide a vital service to local people and should be seen as community hubs.

"Expanding the range of services is crucial to ensuring the long-term future of post offices in Barnsley and their place in our communities.”
