Ban Commercial mailshots addressed to The Occupier

Additional Information

Companies should not be allowed to circumvent the Mail Preference Service by sending Unsolicited Commercial Mail addressed to either "The Occupier" or "The Householder".

Commercial Mail senders should also be required to provide a reply-paid envelope so that recipients can opt out from receiving it. The opt out has to be honoured by the sender within 28 days, and the address tagged so that no further mail shots are sent to that address.

As an additional benefit, reducing the number of unwanted commercial mailings will save money for Local Councils who will not have to use landfill or recycling utilities to dispose of millions of bits of unwanted paper each week.
