Royal Mail response to Competition Appeal Tribunal judgment

The Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) has today issued its judgment on Royal Mail plc vs Office of Communications. We are studying its contents carefully. Royal Mail is disappointed by the CAT's judgment to uphold Ofcom's decision.

We are considering all legal options, including whether to seek permission to appeal and to request that payment of the penalty, which would otherwise become payable, be stayed pending any appeal. We will provide an update once we have completed our legal review.
