Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP David Mundell, who represents one of the largest rural parliamentary constituencies in the UK has welcomed new safeguards for postal services announced by Ofcom. Mr Mundell believes that maintaining local access to the Royal Mail network is essential for local residents and businesses in the region.
