HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 cc539-40W
Q50. Mr. Rippon

asked the Prime Minister whether she will designate a Minister with specific responsibility for postal services.

The Prime Minister

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry has the sponsorship responsibility for the Post Office Corporation including the postal business. By virtue of the Post Office Act 1969 operational matters affecting postal services are for the Corporation itself.
