  1. How to deal with the 'sorry mate, data protection' fob off DPA1998 Section 32, subsection 2, para (a) and/or (b)
  2. The CPS site quotes the Deegan case, BUT seems to forget the Point of Public Interest in the last paragraph. It's all a bit suspect.
  3. Err, yeah. The prohibition (S139) applies to a folding pocket knife if over 3 inches. ss3 must be read in conjunction with ss2
  4. When it comes to law, virtually nothing is for the local constabulary to decide. I seem to remember that we have a parliament to make the rules.
  5. The final paragraph of the appeal case that the police always seem to miss out when this subject is raised. Reads as follows :- Application for leave to appeal to the House of Lords refused, but point of general public importance certified as follows: 'That the article 'a folding pocket knife' as mentioned in section 139(2) Criminal Justice Act 1988 as being an exemption subject to subsection (3) to the offence made by section 139(1) means a knife that has a blade that folds, whether or not it (the blade) is capable of being opened and locked into an open position and equally capable of being folded once the mechanism had been operated to unlock the blade.' Taken from the handed down judgement of the Appeal Court. Do not believe everything your government publishes on the internet.
  6. The problem with this page is I'm not convinced its accurate, ref lock knives.
  7. The Terry Martin case was not as clear as the media portrayed. That aside, the gel sprays would be as legal as the dye-packs in money transport containers.
  8. Signage may not. However, they are advertisements, which DO require planning permission. For further details http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2007/783/schedule/3/made
  9. Local planning office can tell you all applications made for any plot of land.
  10. Thanks Silverfox, I will be dealing with it asap. They are now the only black mark on my credit reference, and I was considering a mortgage
