Major shake-up of post deliveries planned.
Consignia, the new name for the Post Office, is considering charging customers an annual fee to deliver their post before 9.30am. But it denied that a fee of pounds 50 was being considered.
The shake-up could also see the second post - in which three million letters are delivered - scrapped. Customers might be given the option of collecting mail on their way to work.
A spokesman said: "We're considering a whole range of proposals to bring added-value beyond the cost of a stamp.
"Customers may also be able to e-mail us to ask for their letters to be re-routed if they are working away from home.
"The second mail is a bit expendable in some ways as only three million out of 80 million items are delivered every day during it."
