HC Deb 11 November 1996 vol 285 c12W
Mr. Harvey

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will review the process of formulating postcodes, in order to(a) encourage the retention of local identity, (b) facilitate the effective operation of delivery and (c) ensure that the highway authorities and the Royal Mail wherever possible retain the use of local area names as locality names in postal addresses. [3160]

Mr. Page

No. The designation of postcodes and postal addresses is an operational matter for the Post Office.
