Post Offices: Scotland

Volume 458: debated on Monday 19 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many responses to the Post Office consultation his Department has received from (a) Orkney and Shetland and (b) each Scottish constituency. (126904)

The Department has received over 2,300 responses to its public consultation on the future of the Post Office network, which ended on Thursday 8 March. In addition, the Department also received a number of local petitions and post card/stock letter campaigns.

We do not hold the information in the form requested, though a breakdown by region indicates that responses from Scotland accounted for around 19 per cent. of the total.
