HC Deb 26 July 1968 vol 769 cc259-60W
Mr. Robert Howarth

asked the Postmaster-General what arrangements he proposes to make to ensure consultation between the proposed Post Office Corporation and the users of its services throughout the United Kingdom.

Mr. Stonehouse

In addition to the national Users' Council proposed in the White Paper on the Reorganisation of the Post Office (Cmnd. 3233), the Post Office Bill to be introduced next Session will propose the establishment of three statutory Country Councils to represent the interests of users of Post Office services in Scotland, Wales and Monmouthshire, and Northern Ireland, respec- tively. The Bill will provide for these Country Councils to be appointed by the Minister sponsoring the Post Office Corporation.
