On 9 November the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills published the policy statement 'Securing the Post Office Network in the Digital Age'. This document provides detail on Government's ambition for the Post Office to function as a front office for local and central Government.

As the Department that is responsible for Government's 100% shareholding in Post Office Ltd, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has worked alongside the Cabinet Office and Post Office Ltd to identify opportunities where the Post Office will be able to compete for future Government services across government and its agencies.

The Department continues to take a constructive approach to explore opportunities where the Post Office can offer and compete for the provision of services.
