Guernsey Post delivery cuts 'make sense'

Plans to reduce Guernsey's postal services reflect the changing nature of the industry, the island's Office of Utility Regulation has said.

Falling revenues and an increasingly costly relationship with the UK's Royal Mail mean the Commerce and Employment Department is looking at savings plans.

One proposal is cutting deliveries from six days a week to five.

The regulator said reducing the service made sense to maintain the sustainability of Guernsey Post.

In comments to the States, the director general of the regulator, John Curran, said that if any service should be cut it should be on Saturdays and that the regulator would ensure Guernsey Post adhered to the changes.
