Royal Mail: Privatisation

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 17 March 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many expressions of interest the Government have received on the partial sale of Royal Mail; and from whom such expressions have been received. (263668)

[holding answer 13 March 2009]: Government have received a number of expressions of interest regarding entering into a partnership with Royal Mail. At this stage of the process only TNT has made their interest public. For commercial confidentiality reasons it would not be appropriate to reveal details on who else wishes to explore the possibility of entering into a partnership with Royal Mail.
