Post Offices

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what estimate he has made of the percentage of people living in rural areas who are within one mile of a post office; and how many lived within one mile in 1997. (108654)

I have been asked to reply.

I understand that Post Office Ltd.’s latest figures show that 81.95 per cent. of the population in rural areas are within one mile of a post office branch. The same information for 1997 is not available.
