I downloaded, completed and submitted my form by e-mail but was requested to "Please either submit it online or send it to the Freepost address given on the form." After finding no method to "Submit It Online", I asked how this could be done, only to be told "Completed forms must be signed and returned by post, as we need to have the original paper work". So much for being an environmentally aware and modern organisation.
I too have been a walkman for royal mail and know how the mail is often damaged and "lost", so there is no guarantee that posting means receipt. I affixed a "No Unaddressed Mail" sticker to my letterbox but that is ignored because "There is no opt-out registered at the delivery office". Royal Mail is now a private company and should be stripped of its "Royal" and is mail in transit still the property of the crown?
