Parcel delivery firms are to be given a "statement of principles" to try to improve things for people in remote parts of the UK who face high delivery charges. Consumer affairs minister Jo Swinson, who will make the announcement in Glasgow today, will set out best practice for businesses - including couriers, e-retailers and parcel delivery firms - to make sure delivery charges for consumers in remote communities, such as the Highlands and Islands, are more transparent. Margaret Lynch, chief executive of Citizens Advice Scotland, which has campaigned on the issue, said: "This UK-wide statement is 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."
