The Countryside Alliance welcomes this opportunity to respond to the Ofcom ‘Review of the regulation of Royal Mail’, as it is timely to consider the effectiveness of the existing regulatory structure in light of potential changes to the market regarding end to end delivery, the growth of the internet and the future of the Universal Service Obligation (USO). While the USO is outside the scope of the Ofcom review we feel it is important to ensure any changes to Royal Mail regulation maintains the six-day-a-week, one-price-goes-anywhere service that Royal Mail provides and our members and rural communities value so much.
