  1. Didn't know where to post this - please move if there is a more appropriate section I was without mains water for a couple of weeks whilst building works were taking place. For drinking water, tea, coffee etc I purchased huge amounts of Buxton Bottled water. I would normally use a water filter for tap water because of the lime scale - but didn't for the bottled water - within a week the scale in the kettle was so thick, it took 3 sachets of descaler to remove it ! I thought bottle water was filtered in some way, is this not so ?
  2. Sent my appeal off with some brief details of why i was appealing , Had a Letter from DWP confirming that they received my appeal, and about how much ESA i will get until it's heard, But so far over 1mth since requesting the full written statement of the Atos wca Form IB /ESA85, But so far i have not been sent it, The person that i recently spoke with from DWP ,Confirmed that they could see that i had previously requested it, but could not understand why i had not yet received it, What can be done to force them to supply this info,(assuming it actually exists) ?
  3. Ministry of Justice amendments to Contracts for Court Fine enforcement. In 2006 the Ministry of Justice awarded contracts to private sector bailiff companies to enforce magistrate court fines. Over time, new contracts have been awarded and the current position is that only four companies are contracted to enforce unpaid criminal court fines with Marston Group and Collectica Ltd enforcing in the UK and Excel Ltd and Swift Credit Services covering Wales. In April 2014 the Ministry of Justice Procurement Directorate (as representative of the Secretary of State) made important amendm

  5. Hi Ladies and Gents I decided to act upon a letter from Lloyds regarding a PPI claim. They sent me a letter in March and one on May advising me they consider I have a claim for PPI compensation. I sent the forms back on the 10th of June and within a week I received an acknowledgement of receipt of claim along with the literature about complaints etc. How long do Lloyds normally take to make a decision about claim applications? All previous threads relate to last year and before so nothing of any recent experiences. Thanks.
  6. Just after a little advice please. I work for a Local Authority. They have decided to revise the pay scales for managers and introduce new bands etc. As a result they have re-evaluated my job role and assigned it to a grade in the new structure which pays less than my grade in the current structure. They have given a year's protection but then I take a pay drop. This isn't as a result of a restructure or change of role so my question is can they justcome up with new scales and decide to pay me less in the same role? Thanks for any advice.
  7. After Swiss bank UBS agree to pay £940m in fines to settle charges of manipulating Libor, Damian Reece, The Telegraph's Head of Business, says the scale of undetected wrongdoing is "shocking". Swiss banking giant UBS has agreed to pay £940m to regulators in order to settle charges of manipulating Libor interest rates, fraud and paying bribes to brokers. UBS' 1.4bn Swiss franc (£940m) fine includes a £160m payment to the Financial Services Authority, the largest penalty ever levied by the British watchdog, and $1.2bn paid to US authorities. The penalty is the second-largest fine paid
  8. The PPI mis-selling compensation bill has ballooned again as Lloyds Banking Group revealed a £700million hike in the sum needed to meet claims. The bank has now set aside a total of more than £4.2billion to clean up after the debacle, some £1billion more than it originally estimated. The £700million hit revealed today was much higher than the extra £375million forecast by the City - and today Lloyds warned this may not be the final figure.
