Royal Mail: Industrial Disputes

Volume 498: debated on Wednesday 28 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what estimate he has made of the cost to the economy of industrial action at Royal Mail in 2009 to date. (295883)

It is clear that postal disruption will have an impact on those businesses and services that heavily rely on Royal Mail services.

We continue to maintain regular contact with both the management and the union about the dispute. Our message to them is that, in the interests of Royal Mail, the CWU's members and the country, they should sit down and resolve this dispute through talks.
