http://www.local.gov.uk/web/guest/regul ... E-TEMPLATECommunications Data Bill: template letter for councils
17th January 2013The LGA, National Anti-Fraud Network (NAFN) and ACTSO are jointly working together to make the business case for councils to retain their access to communications data.
The Home Office currently believes this is not necessary and removes this access in their Communications Data Bill currently passing through Parliament. We require the support of all councils to help change their mind - please make use of this template letter to evidence the impact that the loss of this data would have on your council to your local MP.
Affected services areas are likely to include: Housing Benefit and Council Tax Fraud; Consumer law offences; fly-tipping; counterfeiting; and illegal money-lending.
Access the template letter in two formats, OpenDocument Text format and PDF.
