§ Mr. David Mitchell
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what profit or loss was made by the Post Office on its operations in the last financial year; and what returns this represents on the assets employed in the business.
§ Mr. Benn
The Post Office has already recognised the shortage of envelopes by amending its regulations to allow electoral communications to be sent as568W addressed folders. If proposals with regard to delivery according to submitted lists were to come forward I have no doubt the Post Office would consider them.
