Royal Mail — Notes Conservatives' failure to invest — 11 Feb 2009 at 18:47

The majority of MPs voted in favour of the motion:

  • This House
  • notes the threats to the future of the Royal Mail and welcomes the conclusion of the Hooper Report that, as part of a plan to place the Royal Mail on a sustainable path for the future, the current six days a week universal service obligation (USO) must be protected, that the primary duty of a new regulator should be to maintain the USO, and that the Government should address the growing pensions deficit;
  • notes that modernisation in the Royal Mail is essential and that investment must be found for it;
  • endorses the call for a new relationship between management and postal unions;
  • urges engagement with relevant stakeholders to secure the Government's commitment to a thriving and prosperous Royal Mail, secure in public ownership, that is able to compete and lead internationally and that preserves the universal postal service;
  • further notes the Conservatives' failure to invest in Royal Mail when they were in power in contrast with Labour's support for both Royal Mail and the Post Office; and
  • notes that legislation on these issues will be subject to normal parliamentary procedures.

This motion replaced a Conservative Party motion which was rejected in the previous division which urged the Government to implement rapidly the proposals for a partial privatization given in the Hooper Review.
