Small post offices will only be closed with the agreement of local authorities, the Czech interior minister, Ivan Langer, said on Thursday. He said he would not give approval to the closure of any branches of the postal service unless the local town hall had assented to the move. Czech Post had been planning to shut down nearly 180 small branches. There are nearly 3,400 post offices around the country, with the postal service employing 37,000 people.
