  1. RAF’s legendary Dambusters squadron reforms to fly F-35 jets READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/rafs-legendary-dambusters-squadron-reforms-to-fly-f-35-jets
  2. One year review of enforcement agent reforms READ MORE HERE: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/one-year-review-of-enforcement-agent-reforms
  3. https://www.nationaldebtline.org/EW/factsheets/Pages/bailiff-reform/our-campaign.aspx Back in May, National Debtline launched a campaign for a reform of enforcement practices. Perhaps we should encourage people to take part in this excercise that ND are organising. EC's do need to be properly regulated.
  4. A major restructuring of the criminal legal aid system in England and Wales has been scrapped, Justice Secretary Michael Gove has confirmed. Mr Gove said he had "decided not to go ahead" with plans to cut duty solicitor contracts at police stations and magistrates' courts by two thirds. He also suspended for 12 months a second 8.75% cut in legal aid fees. Labour shadow justice secretary Lord Falconer said the government's plans had "descended into utter chaos". The proposed cuts - drawn up by former Justice Secretary Chris Grayling - would have reduced the number of legal aid contracts from 1,600 to 527. However, Mr Gove said there were "real problems" in pressing ahead with the proposals. BBC
  5. Controversial plans to tighten rules on trade union strike ballots in Britain have passed their first Commons hurdle despite fierce Labour criticism. MPs backed the Trade Union Bill, which proposes higher voting thresholds for ballots, by 33 votes at second reading. Business Secretary Sajid Javid said the bill was "not a declaration of war" against unions but necessary to stop "endless" threats of industrial action. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-34241810
  6. http://www.wigantoday.net/news/local/21-000-in-court-1-6339996 I fear that this story is just the “tip of the iceberg” and will lead to very vulnerable debtors being the subject of bailiff enforcement. The Consultation paper on bailiff reform had just finished when the Council Tax Benefit was abolished and the ‘bedroom tax’ introduced. The new fee scale that is due to be implemented in April could have devastating effects as the majority of the debtors that are subject to Liability Order following the benefit changes are either on benefits or are pensioners. The Welfare Reforms could well be a disaster.
  7. Banks will have to submit employees to "annual health check" under new staff approval rules in Banking Reform Bill amendments. Banks will be required to give regulators an annual health check on all their senior staff to confirm they are suitable to keep their “authorised” status in the UK. The new rule came in an amendment to the Government’s Banking Reform Bill and will force every bank to conduct senior staff reviews “at least once a year” and to tell the authorities if there are “any grounds” to withdraw their license to operate. The annual check-ups are one of a series of amendments tabled by the Government to ensure the Bill gets through Parliament after several peers threatened last month to disrupt its passage in the House of Lords. In a series of amendments tabled at the weekend, the Government confirmed it would review proprietary trading by banks and set up an independent panel to conduct a study. The Government also offered the extraordinary concession of handing the final say on the composition of the independent review panel to the chairman of the Treasury Select Committee, a role currently filled by Andrew Tyrie MP, who led much of the opposition to the Bill.

  8. Check this one out, another instance of the law of (un)intended consequences, well it makes you wonder if the government want bailiffs to make more profit, as that is the obvious result of some of their reforms of Welfare Benefits, as more use will be made of Distress to collect the resulting increase in council tax arrears. http://news.sky.com/story/1094979/bailiff-boom-as-council-tax-benefit-cuts-bite looks like Capita, Equita, and Ross 'n Robbers and their ilk will be rubbing theit hands with glee at the prospect of all those fees they will rake in from people at their wits end, with no spare cash to pay their outrageous demands.
  9. British banks have put forward proposals to reform the sector after a summer of scandal further battered the industry's reputation. Barclays called for a chartered institute of bankers in its submission to the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards. It would oversee a code of conduct and a register of banking professionals. It would have the power to strike off bankers who do not stick to the set standards, Barclays said.
