Ninth Special Report|
1. The Business and Enterprise Committee published
its Sixth Report of Session 2007-08, After the Network Change
Programme: the future of the post office network, on 2 June
2008. It published its Tenth Report of the Session, Post Office
finance: matters arising from evidence taken on 10 June 2008,
on 25 July 2008. Responses from the Government to both Reports
and from Postwatch to the Sixth Report are appended to this Report.
2. During the network change post office closure
programme, Postwatch has been submitting regular progress reports
on the closure programme to the Committee. These were previously
made public by Postwatch itself. Now that Postwatch has been subsumed
into the new body, Consumer Focus, the Committee has decided to
place copies of the progress reports in the Library of the House
of Commons and the Record Office, and on the Committee's web pages
to ensure that they remain available.
