In response to many complaints, David Johnston, MP for Wantage and Didcot, will be chairing a meeting next month regarding postal delays.

Constituents will be invited to attend and will have the opportunity to quiz Royal Mail management on this issue.

They will be able to put their concerns and questions directly to representatives from Royal Mail HQ, the Communication Workers Union, as well as local delivery offices.

This comes after complaints to Mr Johnston have once again increased, and both he and constituents feel dissatisfied with the replies they receive from Royal Mail HQ.

Mr Johnston said: “I’ve said throughout this period that our postmen and women have been working very hard, but something clearly isn’t right in the management of Royal Mail when my constituents pay more and more for a service they don’t receive.

“The meeting I will chair next month will let local residents put the problems they’ve been having directly to Royal Mail so they can get to the bottom of why they’ve been experiencing problems.”

The MP has received more complaints about Royal Mail than any other organisation since he was elected in 2019 and has been regularly raising this in Parliament and in meetings with Ministers.

Last year, he led a debate in parliament on the performance of Royal Mail where he put the concerns of constituents directly to the Minister for Postal Affairs.
