Post Offices: Northavon

Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

22. To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many sub-post offices there were in Northavon in 1997; how many there are; and whether he has made an estimate of the number which will be open after the review is complete. (166803)

I have asked the managing director of Post Office Ltd to write to the hon. Member with regard to his question.

Post Office Ltd is now developing local implementation plans and as yet no decisions have been made on individual post office closures. There are no local quotas for closures. I understand the local consultation for Bristol and Somerset, which includes the hon. Member’s constituency is planned to start on 26 February 2008.
