Delivery Charges

EDM number 572 in 2017-19, proposed by Drew Hendry on 21/11/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Consumers, Countryside, Internet and cybercrime and Postal services.

That this House recognises that people living in the rural areas of the UK, particularly in the Highlands and Islands, regularly have to pay extortionate delivery charges for goods and products ordered over the internet; expresses its concerns that consumers in the Highlands and Islands are paying, on average, £14.23 more for deliveries; notes that charges such as these cannot be justified, and as a result consumers in the Highlands and Islands, and other rural areas, are being unfairly discriminated against by online sellers due to their place of residence; and supports calls for retailers to end excessive delivery surcharges and to offer delivery by Royal mail where this is the cheaper option.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
