Last week almost 800 newsagents delivered a petition to the Office of Fair Trading demanding urgent action to protect competition in the news distribution industry.
Roger today threw his weight behind the campaign to save Britain’s newsagents.
Community newsagents deliver a vital service and are a friendly face that many people rely on every day. They are a most important part of town and village life and if we lose them they will never be replaced. You cannot re-invent years of traditional service”.
It is shocking and unacceptable that so many newsagents face an uphill struggle to survive. I am happy to pledge my support to newsagents in Margate, Herne Bay, our rural villages and across the UK.”
