nuisance calls

Southport residents fed up with nuisance calls should let the Government know about it.

Residents complaints; top of the list used to be dog mess, it has been push into the number two position by nuisance calls. 

The Culture, Media & Sport Committee have launched a parliamentary inquiry into nuisance phone calls and text messages and want to hear the public’s views on this.

th whole population is fed-up with nuisance calls, and now it’s time to take action.  There is a Parliamentary Bill aimed at straightening things out, too.  And now am delighted that the Select Committee is starting work on the problem that the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) that is supposed to weed these calls out isn’t up to the job.” 

“So there’s something for residents to do if you are as concerned-write in and tell the Select Committee whether TPS has worked for you in stopping nuisance calls, and if not, give the Committee chapter and verse on the number of calls you are still getting.”

The inquiry will focus on the current regulatory system and its enforcement, the effectiveness of the Telephone Preference Service and communications service providers.

The Committee requests short written submissions in Word format to be sent by e-mail to and should have ”Nuisance calls” in the subject line.

Submissions to the Committee should be received by the second week of August

  1. I would urge anyone fed up with nuisance phone calls to sign the e-petition at:
    100's of thousands of people are fed up with them, so how come at the moment there are just 174 signatures????...or if you go to another petition about nuisance phone calls there are just 7 signatures?
    time to act!


I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
