To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will grant funds from the support package for the rural post office network to maintain the North Cumbria Mobile Post Office in its present form. [118085]

I understand from Post Office Ltd. that arrangements are being made for a sub-postmaster to take over the staffing of the mobile post office instead of the loaned directly-employed staff. This is purely an internal operational change. The mobile office will cover the same route, at the same times and offer exactly the same level of service to customers in the same 37 communities in North Cumbria.
