FOI, Royal Mail Group Limited

Dear Ermine,

Following the flotation of Royal Mail on the London Stock Exchange in October 2013, it is no longer subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Royal Mail was previously subject to the Act because it was wholly owned by the government. However, now that the government has sold its shares in Royal Mail, this is no longer the case. Therefore, we are no longer obliged to respond to requests for information under the terms of the FOI Act.

However, anyone who requires information about our products and services can visit our website or contact our customer services teams:

Detailed information about our business is also available from

Yours sincerely,

Kate Watkinson
