Universal postal service and rural post boxes saved!

Despite a fall in the amount of mail being sent, communications industry regulator Ofcom has this week announced it is extending protections against post boxes being removed. The regulator also voiced support for the universal postal service, something the Countryside Alliance is vocal in backing. The costs to the consumer of removing the universal postal service was something no one wanted to countenance and it is encouraging that it will stay in place. 

Claudio Pollack of Ofcom said: "Consumers and businesses across the UK have told us that they place a high value on the universal postal service. Our decision not to change that service means the needs of postal users will continue to be met."
