Post Offices

Volume 457: debated on Tuesday 6 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which post code districts will be exempt from the proposed access criterion that 95 per cent. of the population should live within six miles of a post office; in which (a) local government area and (b) county each district is located; what the size in (i) square miles and (ii) square kilometres is of each; what the estimated population is of each; what the location is of existing post offices in each district which will be exempt; and what the location was of post offices in each district which have closed since 1997. (119289)

[holding answer 6 February 2007]: POL does not maintain information on the location of post offices in each district which have closed since 1997 or relating to the local government areas. Population numbers are estimated using established methodologies for calculating accessibility.
