Post Offices: Cash Dispensing

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 20 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans the Post Office has to install a free cash machine in the Walker Post Office in east Newcastle upon Tyne. (143731)

This is an operational matter for which the management of Post Office Ltd. (POL) have direct responsibility. I understand that this branch currently has a fee paying ATM. The site has been assessed by POL and their venture partner the Bank of Ireland and this is a site where they want to place an external free to use ATM.

I also understand that the subpostmaster has been sent the contract and terms and conditions, and POL are currently waiting for them to return the signed paperwork.
