HC Deb 17 February 1986 vol 92 cc84-5W
Mr. St. John-Stevas

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, when he next meets the chairman of the Post Office, he will discuss with him the feasibility of reopening recently closed sub-post offices; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Pattie

No. Decisions about opening or closing individual post offices are an operational matter for the Post Office Board.
