§ Mr. Bowis
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when his Department last chaired a meeting of the public and private postal services working group; what was discussed; when it will next meet; and whether representatives of the Institute of Logistics and Distribution Management will attend.
§ Mr. Forth
The working group chaired by my Department to which I believe my hon. Friend refers is a technical working party of officials and representatives of the industries concerned with Her Majesty's Customs" treatment of express consignments. Its meetings are private and it would be inappropriate to publish details. The Institute of Logistics and Distribution Management is not represented.
