Written Answers. - Postal Network.

Deputy Kathleen Lynch asked the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources if An Post has completed its review of its network; if it has presented its findings and recommendations to him; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5628/09]

  Deputy Eamon Ryan: The review of the post office network is a matter for An Post and I understand that the company has yet to complete this work. It is Government policy that An Post remains a strong and viable company, in a position to compete in a liberalised market, provide a high quality, nationwide postal service and maintain a nationwide, customer-focused network of post offices.
