I assure my hon. Friend that will be the case. My colleague the Under-Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Mr Davey, who has responsibility for postal services, will spell out later today and in Committee exactly how the process will operate. My hon. Friend is right: at present the deregulation provisions do not give the Royal Mail sufficient protection against unfair competition. We want to make sure that there is more protection in the deregulation process.
