Stewart Stevenson MSP Calls for End to Eyewatering Delivery Fees

Stewart Stevenson MSP has called for an end to eyewatering delivery fees as over £2million was paid by his constituents as result of delivery surcharges.

New figures published ahead of Black Friday, have laid bare the annual cost of rip-off delivery charges for shoppers across rural Scotland.

The figures from the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe), found that consumers in Banffshire and Buchan Coast were left footing a £2,035,00 million bill this year alone in additional delivery fees.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the total figure paid by Scots shoppers has now reached £40.1 million relative to the rest of the UK.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“Westminster has the powers to put an end to rip-off parcel delivery surcharges for Scots – but for too long now successive UK governments have sat on their hands and done nothing.

“It is completely unjust that shoppers in the North-east are expected to fork out huge sums of money each year on these surcharges.

“Delivery surcharges continue to hit the pockets of families across Scotland- it’s time for the next UK government to take some real concrete action and get a grip of these sky-high surcharge fees."
