Scrap the International Handling Fee

Additional Information

The International Handling Fee is a fee that the Royal Mail charges for all items purchased outside the EU that are worth more than £18.

At present this fee is £8 and is used to pay for the cost of calculating the VAT of the item. As this fee is grossly disproportionate to the cost of calculating VAT it should be scrapped.
