Post Office Inland Parcel Post Schemes 1989-2012

In 1989 the general Inland Post Scheme was split into two, one for letters and one for parcels (in advance of the rebranding of Royal Mail Parcels as Parcelforce in 1990).

The Post Office Inland Parcel Post Scheme 1989 was amended, renamed the Successor Postal Services Company Inland Parcel Post Scheme 2001 and treated as made under section 89 of the Postal Services Act 2000 by article 38 of the Postal Services Act 2000 (Commencement No. 4 and Transitional and Saving Provisions) Order 2001 (2001/1148 (C.37)). Hence the "Consignia plc Inland Parcel Post Amendment (No.1) Scheme 2001" follows directly after the "Post Office Inland Parcel Post Amendment (No.12) Scheme 2000" and continues the process of amendments -- except that the numbering was restarted.
