Stamp of approval

East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight has applauded a decision by the Royal Mail to allow people receiving benefits to purchase up to 36 first or second class stamps at Christmas 2011 prices.

Royal Mail is currently distributing vouchers to people in receipt of Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit or Unemployability Supplement. These can be redeemed from 6 November until Christmas Eve at any Post Office branch.
