Ian Davidson MP, Chair of the Committee, said:

“We welcome much of what the minister said to us in evidence regarding protections in the Bill for the universal service obligation, particularly his assurance that a vote in both Houses of Parliament would be required before the six day a week delivery and collection service and universal tariff could be changed.
