Germany: British Forces Post Office

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his most recent assessment is of the future of the British Forces Post Office in Germany. (304328)

From September 2010, BFPO 109 (Ramstein) will see an adjusted service. Armed forces personnel will no longer fulfil the postal functions and some counter services will cease, however, we will employ dependants and civilians locally to run a basic postal receipt and despatch facility. Critically, the BFPO number, which is so useful for administrative purposes such as banking and internet shopping, will be retained. No further changes to British Forces Post Offices in Germany are currently planned.
