Stevenson Hails Efforts Of Royal Mail In Wintry Conditions

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has lodged a motion in the Scottish Parliament congratulating the Royal Mail on the efforts they are making to deliver the post this Christmas, despite the arctic conditions having caused many private couriers to stop serving Scotland.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“If there was ever any need for a demonstration of why it is essential that the Royal Mail is not sold off, it is the sterling efforts that are being made to cope with the Christmas post despite the heavy snow and ice we have experienced.

“Private couriers have effectively cut Scotland off and this is what we risk happening to our post service if Tory plans to sell the Royal Mail go ahead.

“The universal service obligation is a cornerstone of the Royal Mail and recent weeks have shown how important it is that it be maintained. Postal workers have worked incredibly hard and I applaud them for their efforts at ensuring people in Scotland can enjoy a merry Christmas.”
