Delivery charges to remote locations challenged by the government

Margaret Lynch, chief executive of Citizens Advice Scotland, welcomed the new statement of principles, describing it as "recognition that unfair prices and practices for parcels should not, and will not, be tolerated by consumers, regardless of where they live and where they choose to buy their goods from".
I wonder how they are going to make the big courier companies subsidise deliveries to the back of beyond

Over priced delivery was the reason I stopped using ebuyer, they charge a flat £15 for anything delivered to Inverness, when they always used the then £5.99 or £9.99 parcel force option.

Of course, if Royal Mail was still in public ownership then HMG could just tell them how to set their pricing...
