– George Thomson, General Secretary of the NFSP
The stampprice increases are unfortunately necessary to protect the universal postalservice. The rise has led to a spike in demand for stamps and the NFSP (National Federation of Subpostmasters) isworking with Post Office Ltd to ensure that subpostmasters continue to receivea full supply. As far as we are aware, there are currently no significant stampsupply problems at post offices.
The Royal Mail has apparently placed a cap on the number of stamps retailers can order following increased sales ahead of a price rise.
