    Biting back against dog attacks: MPs support Royal Mail’s Dog Awareness Week

Dog attacks on MPs will be highlighted in Westminster later today as part of Royal Mail’s Dog Awareness Week.

Royal Mail is publishing the results of a survey of MPs and Assembly Members about their personal experiences of being bitten by a dog.

The survey found that politicians face similar risks of being attacked by a dog to postal workers when out canvassing or delivering leaflets. Just over half of the near-50 respondents revealed they had an incident with a dog.

    New research shows men are more emotional than women

New research published today from Royal Mail looks set to dispel the myth that men don’t experience the same range of feelings as women.

The company has commissioned a scientific experiment that has found men are more emotional than women.

The study, carried out ahead of Father’s Day (Sunday 15th June), explores the emotional make-up of men. In addition, a survey of 2,000 men was undertaken to examine their attitudes to emotion and whether they say how they really feel.
