The PM has responded to the petition to make free-the-postcode like data
available:
http://www.number10.gov.uk/Page22222

Unfortunately, they have confused PAF (the postcode address file, with
every valid address in the country) with Postzon (a list of postcodes
with coordinates to the nearest 100m).

PAF:
http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/jump2?mediaId=400085&catId=400084

Postzon:
http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/content3?mediaId=55900704&catId=400088

They also completely failed to mention that the OS has some control of
this data, and that it is due to be released by them to a greater or
lesser degree in due course.
