Royal Mail

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department spent using Royal Mail in each of the last five years. (115241)

The Treasury’s spending on postage was £46,000 in 2004-05 and £40,000 in 2005-06. For earlier years I refer to the answer given by the then Financial Secretary to the hon. Member for Tatton (Mr. Osborne) on 21 February 2005, Official Report, column 75W. This spending is primarily the franking of letters and packages for delivery by the Royal Mail, and delivery of ministerial pouches, also by the Royal Mail.
