While the Government is pleased that a resolution has been reached on this difficult matter, the Post Office led the mediation and the Government was not party to it.

The financial settlement is a major step towards resolving some of these grievances, however there is more for the Post Office to do. The Post Office has committed to a major programme of work to overhaul its relationship with postmasters which Government is determined to see delivered.
