Don Foster signed EDM 1408 that states:

leave out from `blind’ to end and add `congratulates the Government on seeking to introduce new and stronger protections for the minimum requirements through the Postal Services Bill, such as the requirement that Ofcom must conduct a review of user needs and make recommendations to the Secretary of State before any change can be proposed and the requirement that Parliament would have to scrutinise and approve any proposals for change through the affirmative procedure; notes that these protections were not included in Labour’s Postal Services Bill 2009, or the Postal Services Act 2000; welcomes the Government’s statement that it has no intention of reducing the minimum requirements; and finally notes emphatically that the Bill does not require Ofcom to review the minimum requirements within 18 months but instead requires that it reviews the detail of the wider products and services that form the universal service order within 18 months, as Postcomm currently does, and that this absolutely cannot lead to a change in the minimum requirements
