Use the Royal Mail to deliver passports – the current private delivery company does not attempt to deliver to rural areas, just sends a letter and then demands that a person stays in a whole day to receive their passport.  It is possible to get a two hour delivery slot, but this costs a significant amount of money.

Why is this idea important?

The UK passport is now very expensive and to expect people to waste a whole day waiting in to receive a passport is an insult.  Using Royal Mail special delivery would still keep the need for a signature, but it also means that passports could be left in local delivery offices or post offices for collection later if the person was not at home.
