Departmental Postal Services

Volume 489: debated on Friday 13 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many and what percentage of letters sent by his Department were given to (a) the Royal Mail and (b) another postal services provider for delivery in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement. (259968)

The Department's postal services are provided through the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Research Councils, which manage the buildings that DIUS occupies. None of these organisations separates mail sent by DIUS from its own mail, so information on the number of items of mail sent by DIUS is not held.

Royal Mail has been the sole postal service provider for all office locations in the last 12 months.
