Rogerson calls on Royal Mail to deliver for Cornwall
Responding to press reports that Royal Mail has brought 'final collections' forward in rural areas to as early as 6.30am, North Cornwall MP, Dan Rogerson, today (Tuesday) called on Royal Mail to give a fair deal to rural communities.
Mr Rogerson has written this morning to Adam Crozier, the Chief Executive of Royal Mail and to Nigel Stapleton, Chairman of Postcomm.
Commenting, Mr Rogerson said:
"I have sought reassurances from Royal Mail that final collection times in Cornwall have not been, and will not be, altered in this way.
"It is simply unacceptable to marginalise our communities and businesses by removing their ability to communicate speedily with the rest of the United Kingdom.
"I have requested a meeting with Postcomm, who start their consultation on this issue today. If Royal Mail will not deliver for Cornwall voluntarily, they leave Postcomm no alternative but to regulate."
