Delivery charges petition
The Prime Minister's Office has replied to the ePetition on the 10 Downing Street website, related to delivery charges to the Highlands and Islands. I first reported on this on 8 January. The reply basically says that the Government will not take any action against carriers who appear to discriminate against residents of remote areas by charging more for delivery. In fact, that practice is virtually condoned in the reply. However, people are recommended to shop around and pay close attention to T&C's on websites. Full reply can be read here.
