The Consumer Council for Northern Ireland response to the Ofcom’s further consultation: Recovering postal regulation and consumer advocacy costs
The Consumer Council welcomes the opportunity to respond to Ofcom’s further consultation: recovering postal regulation and consumer advocacy costs, which proposes amendments to the relevant regulatory condition (CP1) to clarify that only turnover relating to domestic services, and not international letters and parcels, should be included when calculating relevant turnover.
The Consumer Council response to the Department for Transport’s ‘Aviation 2050 – the future of UK aviation’.
The Consumer Council supports the government’s objectives for its long term Aviation Strategy. Northern Ireland is unique in the UK in having no road or rail links with the rest of the UK. As such, it relies heavily on aviation to connect its people and its economy to the rest of the UK and the world. We therefore welcome the commitment within the consultation paper to deliver the connectivity that Northern Ireland needs.
We welcome the proposal to develop a Passenger Charter. We would emphasise that a comprehensive framework of regulations already exists and the key issue is to ensure that the requirements in these regulations are delivered consistently for all consumers.
