Post Offices: Closures

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 26 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform pursuant to the answer of 18 February 2008, Official Report, column 397W, on post offices: closures, why Post Office Ltd has not released relevant financial information to Essex county council to help the council explore the viability of financially supporting some of those post offices set for closure. (188896)

[holding answer 25 February 2008]: This is an operational matter for Post Office Ltd (POL). I have therefore asked Alan Cook, managing director of POL, to reply direct to the hon. Member.

Copies of the letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
