Dear Portfolio Committee on Communications,

Even allowing for the effects of COVID-19, the delivery of postal items is, in my experience, so slow as to be useless.

For example, in the week just ending, I collected from my post box at Benmore a letter from a UK based company, Quilter, inviting me to vote on resolutions to be considered at its AGM on 14 May 2020.

In the previous week I collected a letter from Sanral E-toll, enclosing a statement for the period ending 17 March 2020, advising me that a discount on payment was available until 25 June 2020.

Surely more priority should given to improving delivery of postal items, before it becomes completely redundant due to its unreliability.
