Post Office

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

14. To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what steps he is taking to secure the future of the Post Office network. (86202)

As the hon. Member may be aware, I chair the Cabinet Committee on the future of the Post Office network.

The Government remain committed to a viable Post Office network, and to ensuring that communities have access to the services they need, including Post Office services. That is why we have committed £300 million over the period 2006-08 to support the rural network, on top of £450 million in 2003-05.
