France/Minister/Post Telecommunications and Space
| France/Minister/Post Telecommunications and Space |
(Minister for Post, Minister for Telecommunications, Minister for Space)
|French minister for the postal service, and later, telecommunications.|
The Minister of Posts and Telegraphs, to which was later added the charge of Telephones (the position was later named "Minister of Posts and Telecommunications"), was, in the Government of France, the cabinet member in charge of the French Postal Service and development of the national telecommunication system. The position was occasionally combined with Minister of Commerce and Industry or Minister of Public Works.
The ministerial position does not currently exist. The last holder of the position before its abolition linked to the changes in the status of the Post Office and France Telecom was François Fillon in the government of Alain Juppé (until June 2, 1997). The portfolio has largely been merged into other ministerial positions.
