Royal Mail And The Future Of The Post Office

Our plans have given 150,000 Royal Mail employees free shares so they can share in the future success of the company. This is the largest employee share scheme of any major privatisation for almost 30 years.

The Post Office is not for sale. Unlike Labour, there will be no closure programme under this Government. We are providing funding of £1.34bn over four years to maintain a network of at least 11,500 branches across the UK.
