The Post Office Horizon Inquiry wants to hear from current and former subpostmasters and there are a number of ways to take part.
Submit a written response – deadline 23 February
The Inquiry’s ‘call for evidence’ contains 60 questions – see HERE. Not all are relevant to subpostmasters – for example, some are aimed specifically at Post Office Ltd (PO) and Fujitsu staff, and civil servants within BEIS and UKGI. You can answer as many questions as you see fit.
Two key areas you may wish to consider responding to are on:
Attend public or private hearing sessions – deadline for registration 19 March
If you have a story to share of the human cost of the Horizon dispute, you are encouraged to attend a focus group session. These sessions can be open or closed (i.e. no public or media attendance), and private hearings with the Inquiry Chair can also be requested if you wish to share particularly personal or sensitive information.
You can express your interest in registering to attend a session as a participant or spectator – click HERE for more information. The deadline for doing so is Friday 19 March
Take part in the upcoming People Survey
Later this year the Inquiry will run a survey, seeking input from current subpostmasters on “the current service offer between postmasters and Post Office Ltd, as well as account management and relations between the organisations.”
The NFSP will share further information on how to take part in the People Survey as it launches.
A recording of the Inquiry’s first public hearing and some of the information received so far through the ‘call for evidence’ can be viewed online HERE
THE NFSP VIEW
The NFSP will be submitting a written response to the 'call for evidence’. This will include information on our ongoing work to ensure PO’s behaviour and treatment of subpostmasters is appropriate regarding issues with Horizon and cash or stock discrepancies.
