Dear Post Office Limited,

"Since the Post Office began modernising its branch network in 2012, it has added 200,000 extra opening hours as it has transformed more than 6,000 branches across the UK. As part of this, it has become the largest UK retailer open on a Sunday, with about 4,000 of its branches now open seven days a week."Can you say what the number of hours Post Offices(excluding Crown Offices)were open for business in the year ending 2012?Total hours in 2018 and total hours in 2021?

Yours faithfully,

John O'Sullivan

Dear Information Rights Team,
Thank you for a reply.In an attempt to keep the cost down I will ammend the request.Can we ignore 2012 opening hours for now and concentrate just on 2018 and 2021.Happily Branch numbers stayed the same in this period so the answer to one will do for both.Mains are 47 per week,Traditional 45 hpw,outreach 2-4 so we will say 3hpw.Ihave branch numbers so the math is simple here.If you can say what the average weekly hours a local is open I would be gratefull and lastly how many hours per week do the closed branches contribute to the open for customers figure?

Yours sincerely,
