Dear Post Office Limited,

In her letter of response to the BEIS Select Committee’s current inquiry into POL and Horizon (24th June 2020) former POL CEO, Paula Vennells, stated in relation to POL’s Suspense Accounts:

‘Since it was a technical financial control issue, I asked the CFO to look into it...I cannot remember how this was resolved’ (p 15, para 53).

i) Did this request of the CEO to her CFO generate a report into POL’s Suspense Accounts? If so, please can you release its findings?

ii) Were any other investigations into POL’s Suspense Accounts conducted after independent Forensic Investigators Second Sight raised concerns over their origins? If so please can you release their findings?

iii) Did POL’s external auditor ever raise concerns over the unexplained accumulation, scale or origin of POL’s Suspense Accounts?

Yours faithfully,

Eleanor Shaikh
