As the Special Shareholder of Post Office Limited, my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State appoints a Non-Executive Representative to the Post Office board to provide shareholder oversight of the company. In their independent role, it would not be appropriate for Ministers to regularly meet with the Senior Independent Director of Post Office Limited. Generally, ministers have engaged with Post Office Limited, but they have not met the Senior Independent Director of Post Office Limited in the last 12 months.
