HC Deb 20 March 1980 vol 981 c261W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether the Government have made any decisions about the future of the Post Office Act 1977 which enlarged the Post Office Board.

Mr. Adam Butler

Since my right hon. Friend's statement to Parliament on 12 December 1979, the chairman of the Post Office has reported on the discussions which have taken place between the Post Office and the Council of Post Office Unions. These included the Post Office's new proposals for employee involvement in top level decision making. I have also met the Council of Post Office Unions and senior union officials, and have heard their views.
