Dr. Cable

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when she intends to make a decision regarding the dividend taken from Consignia this year; and what her policy on Consignia dividends is. [35480]

Mr. Alexander

[holding answer 12 February 2002]: I would expect to take a decision on dividends after the end of the current financial year. The policy on dividends is set out in the White Paper, "Post Office Reform: A World Class Service for the 21st Century".
