MP calls Post Office delays into account discrepancies investigations unacceptable


17th December 2014

Speaking in a debate on the Post Office’s Horizon accounting system and their treatment of sub-postmasters, Jonathan Djanogly calls the years of delay in investigating sub-postmasters who found discrepancies in their accounts to be totally unacceptable.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing this debate and on the huge amount of work he has done on this issue over many years.

Unfortunately, this saga has seriously affected the reputation of one of my constituents. I use the word “saga” because what I find so unacceptable—I think my right hon. Friend was just coming to this—is the delay. For year upon year, people’s reputations have been on the line and sub-postmasters have not known what their status or position is or how the issue is progressing. I find the Post Office’s foot-dragging, inefficiency, and years of delay absolutely unacceptable.

Mr Arbuthnot: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. When people’s houses are being repossessed, as is happening throughout the country, time really matters.
