HC Deb 24 July 1989 vol 157 cc517-8W
Mr. John Marshall

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what is his assessment of by how much the amount which would be realised from the sale into the private sector of Post Office Counters would exceed the book value of its property assets.

Mr. Newton

We have no estimate of the possible sale value of Post Office Counters Ltd. The net book value of its land and buildings at 29 March 1989 was shown as £70.8 million in its 1988–89 accounts.
