HC Deb 08 February 2002 vol 379 c1188W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on what InvestoSave bids are relevant to the rate of use of sub-post offices for electronic communication and transfer; and what progress is being made in this field. [25689]

Mr. Alexander

The Post Office is involved with three projects under the joint HM Treasury/Cabinet Office initiative, InvestoSave, namely the national geospatial data framework, the change of address project and extension of websites of Norfolk local authorities. It is too early to say to what extent work on these projects will impact on business of the sub-post office network.
