- John Spellar MP for Warley backs leading consumer rights campaign for consumers to have the right to choose, without disadvantage, how they are contacted by banks, utility companies and other service providers.
- John met the campaign’s chair, Judith Donovan CBE, in the Houses of Parliament (on 29th November) to discuss the campaign and the importance of consumer choice.
- The Keep Me Posted campaign has introduced the Keep Me Posted “Mark of Distinction.” The Mark has been awarded to over thirty service providers such as HSBC and Natwest who offer consumers the ability to choose paper statements and bills without being charged for the privilege.
John Spellar MP praised the Keep Me Posted campaign’s efforts to ensure that service providers who offer consumers the choice of how they receive bills and statements.
John Spellar MP for Warley, said: “The Keep Me Posted Campaign’s findings demonstrate that consumers manage their financial affairs more effectively when they receive bills in paper format, particularly those who are considered vulnerable such as people living with disabilities or in poverty. I support the consumer’s right to choose.”
Judith Donovan CBE, Chair of the Keep Me Posted campaign, said: “Since the launch of Keep Me Posted four years ago, over 100 organisations have pledged their support in ensuring that consumers retain the right to receive paper statements without penalties.
We really appreciate the support of John which takes us one step closer to making sure that the people of Warley have the right to choose.”
