EU: Postal Services

Volume 691: debated on Thursday 26 April 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have assessed the document produced by the Communication Workers Union on European postal services in response to the European Commission's proposal to liberalise the postal services sector in Europe. [HL3289]

The Government are aware of the Communication Workers Union response to the European Commission's proposals to liberalise postal services in Europe and welcome its input to the consultation process.

The Government support the European objective of implementing a single market for postal services in 2009 by opening up the sector to competition in a gradual and controlled way within a regulatory framework that ensures the sustained provision of a universal service.
