HC Deb 11 February 1980 vol 978 c432W
39. Mr. Rippon

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will give a general direction to the Post Office to maintain sub-post offices without reducing either their services or the remuneration of sub-postmasters.

Mr. Michael Marshall

No. The services provided to sub-post offices and the remuneration of sub-postmasters are matters for negotiation between the Post Office and the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters respectively.

The effects of any significant proposed change of business volume on the sub-post office network will however be subject to the most careful consideration and proper consultation.
