Royal Mail: Bicycles

Volume 716: debated on Wednesday 27 January 2010

Questions

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether Royal Mail has considered investing in freight bicycles to enable cycling postal workers to carry more weight; if so, what conclusions were reached; and for what reasons. [HL1465]

Decisions regarding its delivery operations are matters which are the direct responsibility of Royal Mail’s senior management team.

I have therefore asked the chief executive of Royal Mail, Adam Crozier, to respond directly to my noble friend and a copy of his reply will be placed in the Library of the House.
