CLA condemn “no post” threat to rural businesses

The threat from the Royal Mail to end its obligation to deliver and collect post six days a week would cause serious harm to those who live and work in the countryside, says the CLA.

Claiming that the ending of the long-standing delivery would place all rural services under “significant strain”, CLA President, Henry Robinson, said he would be writing to Ofcom, calling on them to seriously consider allowing other operators in the postal market to fill the gap.

“We recognise that a company like Royal Mail must seek to generate profit,” he said. “However, this has to be addressed through achieving fair competition, not removing a vital service from rural consumers.”
