2:47pm Friday 21st February 2014 in News
The Keep Me Posted campaign, has received a boost fromPreseli Pembrokeshire AM Paul Davies.
Mr Davies has expressed his support in the Assembly by signing a Statement of Opinion which calls for greater consumer choice and protection of vulnerable consumers. The campaign presses for the consumer’s right to choose how organisations, such as banks, energy and telecoms companies send customers their bills and statements.
Mr Davies said: “’I’m fully supportive of the Keep Me Posted campaign which offers customers the choice of receiving information through paper correspondence if they so wish. You simply cannot penalise people for choosing to opt for paper correspondence rather than online information. Some areas of Pembrokeshire have particularly bad problems with access to broadband, and it would be unfair to penalise these people, who clearly have a right to communicate in any format that they wish.”
Judith Donovan CBE, chair of the Keep Me Posted campaign, said, “Since the launch of the Keep Me Posted campaign businesses and consumers have contacted us in their thousands to show their support, and this issue is only going to get more important as customers demand communications choice.
"We thank Paul Davies for his support in bringing our campaign to the political forefront on behalf of Preseli Pembrokeshire, and urge other politicians and indeed, regulators to look at how consumers are communicated to as a matter of priority.”
