HC Deb 09 February 2004 vol 417 c1218W
Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which(a) convenience store companies and (b) supermarket chains have post office branches located in their stores; how many branches each organisation had located in its stores in each year since 1997; and if she will make a statement on the continued availability of such branches in convenience stores.

Mr. Timms

We do not collect the information requested, which is an operational matter for the Post Office. I have therefore asked the Chief Executive to reply direct to the hon. Member.
