Royal Mail chief executive Adam Crozier is confident that the remaining post offices in Broadway territory can cope with the Christmas demand, despite a raft of recent post offices closures.
But the pledge hasn't convinced local MP Lynne Featherstone, who noted that no specific promises for additional resources were made over and above the normal provision for the festive period.
She said: "Given that a staggering four out of the ten Post Offices have been axed in Hornsey & Wood Green, it is completely ridiculous to claim that no extra staff will be needed for the Christmas rush.
"There could be real pandemonium without thorough planning now. Christmas can be stressful enough without the extra worry over whether friends and family will get their gifts on time.

"Their response is simply not good enough, especially as they promised this in public before they closed them.
She is conducting a survey of queues at local post offices and said: "I would encourage people to return their completed surveys so I can get as full a picture as possible about the true effects of these closures."
