Dear FOIA,

Thank you for your response to my request, I would like to say you have not answered it fully, as I understand NFSP trading Ltd is a commercial trading company. In the interest of openness and transparency could you supply me with some detail of the services you received that warranted the payment of £62.8k excluding VAT to NFSP trading Ltd in financial year 2011/12.

Yours sincerely,

Pat Aspinall

Could POL's decision not to differentiate between those payments made to the 'NFSP', which the original communication requested, and those made to BOTH the 'NFSP' and 'NFSP Trading' be construed as attempting to hide or withold information under the FOIA ? It seems that POL usually makes every effort to avoid misinterpretation of questions, frequently, almost pedantically requesting clarification if there is any room for misinterpretation, regarding the FOIA. Must have been a momentary lapse of dilligence on their part.

Dear FOIA,

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOIA,

On the 16th of June 2011 the general secretary of the Trade Union the national federation of subpostmasters asked the then postal affairs Minister Mr Edward Davey
"we would be grateful if you could help persuade POL to use the federation to deliver training to subpostmasters to help them expand and improve their retail offerings as part of the restructuring process. We would require £3 million training budget through the NFSP trading company to achieve that end".

Was the pilot training seminar ‘Planning a Profitable Future’, training for subpostmasters to help them expand and improve their retail offerings.

Could I have sight of any correspondence you had with Mr Davey and BIS regarding this training.

What was the attendance of the seminar.

What was the outcome of the pilot.

Are there any details about the pilot in the public domain.

Was any other company asked to cost and deliver the pilot.

Have any contracts been signed.

Yours sincerely,

Pat Aspinall

Dear FOIA,

Just to be clear you paid NFSP trading company £62.8k excluding VAT to NFSP trading Ltd in financial year 2011/12 for one pilot seminar that 11 subpostmasters attended.

You did not answer the part of my request below.

Was any other company asked to cost and deliver the pilot?

Yours sincerely,

Pat Aspinall

Dear FOIA,

Sorry you did answer, Was any other company asked to cost and deliver the pilot?

"No other company was asked to cost and deliver a training seminar for Subpostmasters; the seminar was
a one off pilot to test potential support requirements".

Yours sincerely,

Pat Aspinall

Dear FOIA,

To be fair I do not think you have. Is it correct that a subpostmaster can hold contracts to more than one office, so for argument sake the attendance could have been one subpostmaster.

Yours sincerely,

Pat Aspinall

Dear FOIA,

Was the pilot seminar restricted to members of the Trade Union the national federation of subpostmasters,
could you please answer how many subpostmasters attended. Could I have sight of all correspondence with the NFSP Trading Company regarding the pilot seminar.
