Research by Professor Barbara Casu Lukac, Dr Angela Gallo and Dr Francesc Rodriguez Tous in the Centre for Banking Research found that establishing a state-owned UK Post Bank would ensure the long-term sustainability of the Post Office by diversifying its portfolio of activities and increasing revenues. The research was commissioned by the Communications Workers Union.
The research was covered exclusively by The Guardian and was covered by the Irish Independent, Irish Times, Private Eye, Politics Home, the Daily Record and Mortgage Solutions. It was also shared with an extensive list of parliamentarians and other stakeholders and was mentioned in a Westminster Hall debate by the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP.
