To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform if he will place in the Library the minutes of the meeting of 12 September 2007 in Brussels between his Department, the European Commission and Post Office Ltd.

No minutes of the meeting were taken.

This was the meeting in which the future of 2500 Post Offices were decided upon and there were no minutes taken. Why? I thought the EU wanted openness and transparency? Or do they not like the fact that they sat in a meeting with POL and the UK govt reps and said they weren't allowed to extend state aid because Deutsche Post had been making yet more complaints?

We'll never know, I suppose.
