I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for City of York (Hugh Bayley) on 27 February 2006, Official Report, column 138W.

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what written representations he has received from elected representatives of Manchester city council regarding the proposed franchising of Chorlton Crown post office since 15 October 2006; what discussions have taken place between Government Ministers and such representatives on the proposed franchising since that date; and which such representatives have met Ministers to discuss the franchising since that date.

The Department has not received any written representations from representatives of Manchester city council since 15 October 2006.

I am due to meet with representatives from the council shortly in response to a representation received in late September.
