many thanks for the reply
It is not a criminal matter for them to investigate therefore would not be any kind of restricted process, I have not committed any kind of offense, nor have i been notified of it venturing into criminal territory i am sure due diligence would require them to notify the consumer. The MPs where i live are corrupt and useless, and the parliamentary ombudsman service I have used in the past have proved to be an utter waste of time, they are not impartial as they claim, and I would go as far as to state not fit for purpose, and a waste of public money.
reading some other posts they seem to use the welfare reform act as an excuse to request access to peoples personal data. I have reservations about the charter of fundamental rights under ec law been complied with, in my exchanges with the hmrc, i have proof they have breached confidentiality. one of many reasons why i took it through the adjudicator.
my understanding of the IPA is an abuse of delegated authority by the government agencies to delve into private affairs of consumers without legal and or just cause, and I am almost certain they would have to obtain those special permissions you refer to, but who would they come from exactly and on what premise would they delegated bodies , i have found the rip investigator when it is assumed the government abuse the powers conferred to it by unnecessarily/illegally (in my case) investigating people. do you know what the rip people do at all or any experience of them
