Keep Me Posted

That the Parliament supports the Keep Me Posted (KMP) campaign; considers that, with an increase in paperless digital services, access to information can be restricted for people across Scotland, including a number of older and disabled people; understands that 84% of consumers prefer to be given a choice between digital and paper access, that a majority say that they are more likely to read a paper copy of information than a digital version and that half admit that they would consider taking their business elsewhere if no choice was offered; appreciates the work of KMP and the 98 charities, consumer groups and trades unions, including Age Scotland, Dyslexia Scotland, Capability Scotland, the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution, the Scottish Pensioners Forum and Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association; welcomes Royal Bank of Scotland, Scottish Building Society, Edinburgh City Council, South Lanarkshire Council and other service providers committing to support the campaign efforts, and believes that the campaign is very important in helping to ensure that freedom of choice for consumers is protected and enhanced.
