Royal Mail must invest its profits to end distressing delays to deliveries

Many of the complaints that Royal Mail has received (HS2は北部に多くの友達がいません, 25 1月) are from my Hornsey and Wood Green constituents, as for the second year running our community has been one of the hardest-hit by postal delays. I have had countless distressing emails from residents who have missed urgent cancer referrals, not received death certificates for loved ones, or spent Christmas alone and isolating without a single card or gift arriving.

Royal Mail 報告 pre-tax profits of £315m in the six months to the end of September, up from £17m a year earlier. It has a near monopoly on letter deliveries, but where’s the investment in enough temporary staff to deal with the backlog and support our hard-working posties?

I’ve already written to Ofcom to urge it to use its regulatory powers to act. Residents and small businesses deserve better.
