I am most concerned that calls and texts about personal injury claims are still not banned.
This tasteless and intrusive practise encourages dishonest people to try to make claims for injuries they do not have, and drive a misconception that compensation is readily available.
Despite promises to tackle the problem the Government has merely tinkered around the edges of how consent to be contacted is established. Meanwhile its Civil Liability Bill, currently in the House of Commons, seeks to chip away at compensation paid to honest consumers for the pain and suffering of needless injuries. The measures are unjust and ill-thought through.
If the Government wants to do something useful it could take control of the real mischief and ban the scourge on society of nuisance calls and texts.
