Speaking to Newry Times, Fearon explained, “Amongst the cross-border difficulties we discussed was the issue of Postal Charges and services. “Proposals like the introduction of a uniform all Ireland rate for internal and cross border mail have great merit and would be cost effective,” said the Sinn Féin MLA who stated that she intended to take the issue to the floor of the Assembly for discussion. She also praised the work of the Consumer Council. “The Consumer Council is an independent consumer organisation, working to bring about change to benefit consumers. “It has a statutory remit to promote and safeguard the interests of consumers here in the North and has specific functions in relation to energy, water, transport, postal services and food. “The Council focus on helping to get the voice of the consumer heard and to make it count and I would encourage all to avail of the services it provides.”
