§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
asked the Secretary of State for Industry when he expects to receive the annual report and accounts of the Post Office for 1979–80.
§ Mr. Adam Butler
The preparation of the report and accounts of the Post Office for 1979–80 has been delayed by the aftermath of industrial action at the corporation's computer centres between April and September 1979.
As a result, I expect to receive the report and accounts in a few weeks' time and will then place copies in the Libraries of both Houses.
