Committee to question Royal Mail on 22 February
2 February 2023
MPs on the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee will question Royal Mail CEO Simon Thompson on 22 February.
The Committee recalled Mr Thompson after receiving evidence casting doubt over the accuracy of statements he made to the Committee in a hearing on 17 January.
On recalling him, the Committee pointed to three discrepancies that it wants clarity on:
- Whether Postal Digital Assistants are used to urge staff to work faster;
- Whether Royal Mail is compromising its obligation to provide a minimum guaranteed mail service to all addresses and is prioritising parcels; and
- Royal Mail’s position on sick pay for employees.
The session will begin at 2.15pm and will also feature Royal Mail’s Chairman Keith Williams.
