Link System (Post Offices)

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what discussions he has had with the banking sector on opening the Link system to post offices; and if he will make a statement. (96544)

Post Office Ltd. have regular discussions with both Link and the leading banks about access to the Link system through the post office network. My officials have also had discussions with Link. However, these are commercial matters for Post Office Ltd. and I have asked Alan Cook to write directly to the hon. Member with an update on how the discussions are progressing.
