36430 - Post Offices: Franchises (Answered)

Cat Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, how much the Post Office has spent on refurbishing or converting premises of franchise partners for Crown post offices that were franchised in 2014 and 2015 since January 2014.

Post Office Limited runs and manages its Crown post offices. Franchising of these offices is the operational responsibility of the Post Office.

I have asked Paula Vennells, the Chief Executive of Post Office Limited, to write to the hon Member on these matters. A copy of her reply will be placed in the libraries of the House.
