Dear Post Office Limited,

According to its Terms of Reference, POL’s Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee has a duty to review legal matters which may impact on the financial statements of the company.

The Group Litigation was first mentioned in the 2015-16 POL Annual Report (p74):
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/compa...

i) On what date did the ARC Committee first discuss the emerging risk of the Group Litigation as a financial, reputational or strategic risk to POL and was BEIS’s UKGI representative Richard Callard present? Please can you release minutes from this meeting?

ii) How regularly was the progress of the litigation monitored by this committee up until the convening of the GLO Subcommittee in March 2018?

iii) Is POL’s ARC Committee continuing to keep under review the potential financial/reputational/ strategic posed by POL’s anticipated legal activity at the Court of Appeal, its Historical Shortfall Scheme and investigations into over 900 previous SPM prosecutions?

iv) Now that the High Court action has been settled, has the POL GLO Subcommittee been superseded by another committee which is overseeing current legal strategy and outcomes? If so, please can you identify its membership?

Yours faithfully,

Eleanor Shaikh
