Royal Mail referred to Ofcom for failing to deliver letters six days a week
Royal Mail has been referred to Ofcom by MPs for failing to deliver letters across the country six days a week, which is required by law. The company was accused of having "systematically failed to deliver" its universal service obligation in a report by the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee. The report also suggested Royal Mail chief executive Simon Thompson was "not wholly accurate" in the answers given during evidence sessions. Royal Mail could face a fine of around £1 million if Ofcom takes enforcement action.
