    Recived A letter dated 

    Date: 10 August 2020
    Dear Mr McMorrow

    Thank you for your further e-mail to the Postal Review Panel, received on 6 August 2020, regarding your complaint with Royal Mail. Please once again accept my apologies for any problems this matter has caused.


    I have noted your original complaint was regarding the delivery of items and this was resolved locally and a reasonable adjustment put into-place, to allow-maitto-be delivered to you.

    I never agreed the issue had been resolved. The Adjustments have never been explained so I've not had the opportunity to see if they work for me.

    With regards to encrypted e-mails, this is sometimes done by Royal Mail’s servers when sending an e-mail to some domains and recipients. Unfortunately, | have no control over this.

    You've ( as In Royal Mail) have broken email, you've introduced barriers in communicating with you.

    Should you wish to take this matter further, | would advise that you take independent advice.
    For reference, the address of Royal Mail’s legal department is Legal Services; Royal Mail HQ; 100 Victoria Embankment; London; EC4Y OHQ.

    Given all my message have been email providing postal address seams silly.

    Please let me apologise once again. | would like to give you my assurance that Royal Mail are not complacent about the quality of their service and are constantly striving to ensure that you receive the level of service you have every right to expect.

    I don't believe a word of the above.

    Yours sincerely

    Dear Mr McMorrow

    Thank you for your email. I am sorry I am unable to respond by email as all Royal Mail emails are sent in the same secure format,

    So Royal Mail re-invented email and made it useless.
    This also conredicted what others have said.

    Please accept my apologies that my colleague Rob Knowles referred to an email this was a mistake. However, you have said your concerns have doubled, but not explained why or the concerns you now have.

    My original complaint outlined my First set of concerns. These have not been addressed, so outlining more concerns would be pointless waste of my time.

    I have been led to believe Royal Mail are making reasonable adjustments to delivery your packages.

    The Adjustments where put in place in 2019. You removed them without discussion. Now new Adjustment have been explained or agreed

    Rob is currently out of the office, but if you outline your concerns, he will of course address these.

    So Rob is the only one who can deal with my complaint?.

    Yours sincerely

    I just sat down to write a complaint against Royal Mail.
    I raise the issue that “secure messages” remain within Royal Mail control…

    I use email on my phone for simplicity, from my Phone I can Save or Print messages.
    The “secure message” system removes this ability, the website Mimecast is not optimised for mobile phones. As raise with Nicola Barnham on Fri, 26 Jun 2020 14:16:49 my unanswered point about the inability for the message to be printed. It also poses a regulatory issue as messages remain under the control of Royal Main and potential could be changed or deleted.

    As I foresaw several emails I wanted to reference to have been deleted
    This action removes oversight of POSTRS and Ofcom. It also makes legal action impossible as I can’t provide evidence as to what was said.

    How exactly do you intend to explain ignoring me?

    I have a complaint with your response to my claim of disability discrimination. You’ve avoided the claim in the response.
    You’ve ignored my tweets and failed to assist me in this process.

    Mr McMorrow

    UNANSWERED Not even an acknologment. 

    Royal Mail – Complaint – 2020-07-29

    Recived A letter dated 
    I'm assuming this letter is the email referred to in letter of 25th July.

    Dear Mr McMorrow

    Thank you for your e-mail to the Postal Review Panel, received on 13 July 2020, regarding your complaint with Royal Mail. Please accept my apologies for any problems this matter has caused. I have thoroughly reviewed your complaint and I am now able to respond.

    I do appreciate your frustration and I can confirm that Royal Mail should put in place a reasonable adjustment, as defined under the Equality Act, in order to facilitate delivery of your mail.

    The Equality Act 2010 is not optional. You are bound by UK Law to make Reasonable Adjustments.

    However, I am sure you understand that these are unprecedented times and I do apologise that the current problems caused by the Coronavirus pandemic have exasperated this issue for you.

    This fails to explain why you would not follow the alternative adjustment, i.e. The Chair.

    Upon receipt of your complaint, I raised this matter directly with the manager, Abderrazaq Chamnaoui, at your local Delivery Office to investigate. Abderrazaq has confirmed to me that a process has been put in place in order to resolve this issue and that items can now be delivered to you.

    The adjustments where in place in 2019. You changed these, and had not said what the new adjustments are.

    With regards to receiving secure e-mail, I am unsure as to why this happens occasionally, although I believe it is something to do with the receiving server or e-mail provider.

    I have also considered the handling of your complaint and | can see that e-mails went without reply. I have therefore arranged for a cheque to the value of £50.00 to be sent out to you.
    This will follow in the post.

    Royal Mail – Complaint – 2020-07-27

    Recived A letter dated 
    Along with the letter was a £50.00 Cheque.
    No conversation or explanation was given.

    Dear Mr McMorrow
    Further to your correspondence with the Postal Review Panel, please find enclosed the
    payment referred to in the email you were recently sent.
    Should you wish to contact the Postal Review Panel about this matter, they can be
    contacted by email at or by post at FREEPOST Postal Review
    In closing please accept our apologies for any problems caused.

    Yours sincerely
    Royal Mail on behalf of the Postal Review Panel
    Enclosed: Cheque for £50.00 payable to D McMorrow

    Firstly the secure email you use is a insult.
    Secondly, we’ve been here many times before. The manager who the postman called this morning said to him it was policy to leave items on doorstep. This policy allows discrimination by its very existence as disabled people use your service you are bound by the Equality Act 2010 to make reasonable Adjustments for disabled people to use your service.
    Are you still a public body, because the PSED is also going to be fun.
    I have asked for a dead lock letter as you’ve have years to fix this and have failed.

    I have no idea why this is dated 29th.

    – Final Response

    Dear Daniel
    Thank you for your further emails and I am sorry if you are not happy with my responses. The reason I responded to your Ofcom comment, this is what was sent to us by them showing a date of December 2017 but advising your complaint is ongoing with my final response sent to you on the 26th June.
    I am unable to comment why you did not receive a reply from Twitter but apologise this did not happen. Royal Mail of course do not think ignoring customers is acceptable.
    I apologise that there is nothing further I can do to help and that I am unable to give you a more positive response on this occasion. I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that, if you are still unhappy with the outcome, you can ask to have your case reviewed by the Postal Review Panel, who are a body that sit outside of Royal Mail and who will conduct an unbiased review of your complaint. They can be contacted by writing to FREEPOST Postal Review Panel or by email to

    Kindest Regards

    Dear Daniel
    I did send my final reply by email on the 26th June. If you have not received it I can send it again or this time by letter, please advise me.

    Dear Mr McMorrow
    Thank you for contacting us. I’m sorry you were unhappy with the way your mail was delivered and can fully understand your concern.
    We’ve provided guidance to our people to help prevent the spread of any infection in line with preventative guidance from Public Health Authorities. We’ve also made a series of
    temporary adjustments to our parcel handling procedures including:

    * Not handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture signatures, instead we’ll be logging the name of the person accepting the item.

    * When delivering parcels, we’ll step aside to a safe distance while you retrieve your item. This will ensure your item is delivered securely rather than being left outside.

    * Revising our ways of working to ensure, wherever possible, colleagues stay two metres apart.

    * Only one person in our delivery vehicles at any one time.
    * Leaving a ‘Something for You’ card, advising of other ways to get your item.

    * Delivering unaddressed door to door advertising mailings to customers, who have not opted out of receiving them, and are receiving addressed letters or parcels at the same time. For more information on unaddressed mail and how to stop receiving it, visit
    This outcome has been reached in line with Royal Mail’s Terms and Conditions of posting. Full details of these can be found by
    visiting If you feel we have acted outside of these terms and conditions, you can write to us

    The postman argued with me. He could see I’m in a wheelchair would not put it on the chair I put for this purpose.

    The delivery manager needs to come to see me again and I want a written apology from the postman.

    Covid-19 is not an excuse to ignore the needs of the disabled.
