TPA welcomes plan to sell remaining stake in Royal Mail

Today, Chancellor of the Exchequer announced plans to sell off the government's remaining stake in Royal Mail. Responding to the news, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"The Chancellor is absolutely right to go ahead with the sale, which will help to cut down the deficit. Officials at central and local government need to take a long hard look at their assets, and consider releasing more of them to the private sector, making them more efficient and also delivering a significant windfall for taxpayers."
