I have met and corresponded with the chief executive of PayPoint plc on this subject.

I meet regularly with Post Office Ltd to discuss a range of issues, including the services provided at Post Offices. However, the installation of a PayPoint terminal on the private side of a sub postmaster's business is a commercial matter for sub postmasters within the context of the terms of their contract with Post Office Ltd.
