§ Mr. Rowe
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what controls or incentives, such as might be incorporated into the grant system, his Department offers to the managers of sub-post offices to assist them in undertaking the necessary work to make their premises and services accessible for disabled people.
§ Mr. Leigh
I have been asked to reply.
There is no Government scheme for offering grants to sub-postmasters to assist them in making their premises and services available for the disabled. The provision of premises to an acceptable standard for carrying on Post Office Counters business is a matter for the sub-postmaster, usually at his or her own expense, as laid down in the sub-postmasters' standard contract conditions.
