it was the IC that gave this standard response to the police in the first place


Where did you get that information mc661?

I'm looking forward to the outcome of my current complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority against Sky Travel Shop (on Sky Travel and Sky Three) now saying that their 0870 number costs "the national rate of 8p per minute"!

When I spoke with a IC officer around a week ago, I was assured that there is no 'standard response' or 'cookie cutter' boilerplate reply or exemption for police forces and that each FOI request relating to NTS has to be treated on its own merits.

Well, they're not going to admit it are they??   Roll Eyes
... Even if the person you spoke to actually knew ...
And bear in mind that mc661 said that he had been told confidentially.  Lips Sealed

I have only just joined this site and have read with great interest all of your posts as we all know what goes on but feel powerless most of the time to do anything about it , its good that this site brings these subjects into the public domain. Reading these posts also reminded me of something that occured when I was a small child that shows how stupid some people can be regarding information and how ill informed some of them are, when I was a small child my father used to do charity work some of which involved visiting prisoners, on one particular day he was not sure of the visiting times so phoned Directory Enquiries to ask for the prisons phone number only to be met with "sorry we cant give out information regarding prisons as we have no way of knowing who you are" so he also asked a couple of goverment departments and got the same answer I then said "why don't you look in the phone book" to which everyone laughed and advised me that if you cant get it from Directory Enquiries it will not be in the phone book but I looked and there it was as plain as day.

no wonder people keep using the 999 number when trying to get the Police...

Which brings me to the classic question .... If your house is being broken into by a set of hooded robbers and you dial 999 and are asked what service do you need, who do you ask for and why?
