My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, departmental officials and I have had two formal discussions with the Communication Workers Union since 27 June 2007. One took place on the 10 July and the other on the 23 July. Since then there have been a number of informal contacts with the CWU to encourage them to resolve the industrial dispute with Royal Mail through talks.
