South West Beds MP Andrew Selous has thanked all Royal Mail staff for achieving a 94 per cent rate of First Class mail being delivered on time the next business day after posting. This is a better performance than the national performance.
Royal Mail has also confirmed that 98.8 per cent of Second Class letters and parcels were delivered within three working days.
Mr Selous said: “I would like to thank all the hard working postal workers locally who provide such a valuable service throughout the year. Every year I visit the Leighton Buzzard and Dunstable sorting offices to thank our postal workers for the fantastic service they provide. I am also delighted to see new technology and better equipment being provided by Royal Mail so these high standards can be maintained and improved in the future.”
