HC Deb 19 April 2000 vol 348 c535W
Dr. Cable

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many(a) Crown post offices, (b) franchised post offices and (c) sub-post offices there were in each constituency in (i) 1989 and (ii) 1999. [118772]

Mr. Alan Johnson

I understand from the Post Office that they do not hold historical data for the types and numbers of post offices by parliamentary constituency. I have obtained from the Post Office a list of the information as at 1 October 1999, the latest date available, and have arranged for a copy to be placed in the Libraries of the House.
