Cash Remittances

The request was refused by Post Office Limited.

Dear Post Office Limited,

On a regular basis Post Office supplies cash to Post Office branches and on an equally regular basis uplifts excess cash from Post Office Branches. These are known as Remittances.

There are at times discrepancies found between the paperwork advising how much cash has been sent or received compared to the physical count of cash in the bags.

Please provide me with the following information for the past 12 months:

a) How many times did a subpostmaster report having received less cash than the paperwork indicated he was to receive

b) How many times did a subpostmaster report having received more cash than the paperwork indicated he was to receive

c) How many times did the Post Office receive less cash than the subpostmaster indicated was in the remittance

d) How many times did the Post Office receive more cash than the subpostmaster indicated was in the remittance

I have not asked for the amounts involved but should you be prepared to release that information as well I would be most grateful.

Yours faithfully,

Tim McCormack
