I WISH to clarify for your readers that it is no longer possible to pay for a TV licence at the Post Office and that all over-the-counter TV Licensing services transferred to PayPoint last year ("More than just a place to buy stamps," November 14).

The decision to switch these services from the Post Office to PayPoint was made to make it easier for people to pay for their TV licence. There are already over 18,000 PayPoint outlets across the UK, which is more than the number of Post Office branches, and this figure is set to rise.

PayPoint outlets are conveniently located in newsagents, garages and supermarkets and are open for an average of 100 hours per week, with 98 per cent open on Sundays. Seventy-nine per cent of PayPoint outlets open from 9am to 8pm.

People wanting more information about the location of their nearest outlet can call 0845 155 0404 or visit www.paypoint.co.uk/locator.
