First and second-class stamp prices rise
The 2p price rise in the cost of first and second class stamps has now taken effect. A first-class stamp now costs 67p and a second-class stamp now costs 58p, under the price rises that came into force on Monday. Stamps bought before the price rise can still be used without any need to top-up the cost. If the price of a first-class stamp had risen in line with inflation since 1989, it would now cost 41p. If the price of a second-class stamp had risen in line with inflation since 1989, it would now cost 31p. The price of a first-class stamp for a large letter has risen by 3p to £1.01. A second-class stamp for a large letter has also risen in cost by 3p to 79p. All the changes were first announced in February.
