Minister promises to consider Ulverston post office cash machine

This presser from Independent MP John Woodcock reads like a change in tactics from people railing against the loss of local services like banks and post offices. He's asking for a commitment for cash machines to be replaced when banks close their branches (see also Millom, which loses its last bank next month) :

One of the big issues with Santander going from Ulverston is that the cash machine will go as well. We have a post office without a cash machine. That will really damage Ulverston, which is a fabulous market town.
On festival days there are huge queues at existing cash machines. Can the government direct the Post Office to increase its cash machines in such areas?
