HC Deb 04 February 1976 vol 904 c600W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Secretary of State for Industry by whom the studies into the demand for wider banking facilities commissioned by the Post Office were carried out; and what was the cost.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

Research into the wider markets for National Giro services has been undertaken by leading consultants. These consultants were not commissioned by the Government and it is a matter for the Post Office to provide information on the authorship and costs of the studies undertaken on its behalf.
