Judith Donovan CBE, Chair of the Keep Me Posted campaign, said: "Having a say over how you communicate with service providers is an important element of everyone's right, as a consumer, to choice. For those who struggle to access online services it is fundamental to being able to manage their personal finances."
"I am delighted to see that our message is being heard by parliamentary candidates. I encourage other candidates to pledge their support for the Keep Me Posted campaign and fight for their constituents' consumer rights."
