Royal Mail — Rapid partial privatization — rejected — 11 Feb 2009 at 18:47
The majority of MPs voted against the motion:
- This House
- welcomes the Hooper review of UK postal services; and
- urges the Government to implement rapidly the review's proposals for the partial privatisation of Royal Mail.
An alternative motion was proposed and voted on in the next division.
The Hooper Review recommended a “single package of measures” including a “strategic partnership” with a private-sector company – effectively part-privatisation of the Royal Mail.
