Rural Post Office Network

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when the public consultation on the future of the rural post office network is expected to commence; what the nature will be of this consultation; when it is expected to be concluded; and if he will make a statement. (78806)

We are carefully considering options for the network post 2008 and are not working to a specific timetable. There has already been informal consultation with key stakeholders and we expect to consult more widely in due course.
