On 17 May my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State announced the Government’s response to public consultation on the Post Office network. Now that the Government have announced their decisions it is for Post Office Ltd. to strategically develop the network through around 50 local area implementation plans over the next 15 months.

According to the timetable set out by Post Office Ltd., which is publicly available on its website, the local consultation on the Greater London implementation plan is scheduled to begin in April 2008. Final decisions on closures will be taken by POL in light of responses to the consultation.
