    • March 23: As the coronavirus crisis escalates, the UK is placed into lockdown with strict limitations on travel. The Government guidelines state: “You should not be visiting family members who do not live in your home.” The prime minister tells the UK public they "must stay at home". People are warned not to meet friends or family members they do not live with. Those with symptoms had already been told to self-isolate     Friday 27 March: Downing Street On the day Cummings ran out of No 10, his wife, Mary Wakefield, appears to have been already ill, according to her Spectator article about the experience, in which she says: “My husband did rush home to look after me.”   Both Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock test positive for coronavirus, while chief medical officer Chris Whitty says he has symptoms of the disease and is self-isolating.   Mr Cummings said: "I suddenly got a call from my wife who was looking after our four-year-old child. She told me she suddenly felt badly ill." He went home and after a couple of hours his wife felt better and he returned to work. "There were many critical things at work and she asked me to return [to work] in the afternoon and I did." He then "drove up to Durham that night arriving at roughly midnight" with his family.     In spectator articles on 24th and 25th April * Wakefield (wife) wrote in the spectator that Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her * She went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” * Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” * The following days, by Wakefield’s account, were a mixture of family idyll and health nightmare, as she made a “palace out of polystyrene packaging” with their son … even as Cummings’s breathing got so bad that she feared he should be in hospital. But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. That would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April,     Sat March 28th Is apparently the day Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her His wife went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” 10 days from March 28th – would take us to the 7th April.   Mon March 30: Downing Street confirms Mr Cummings is suffering from coronavirus symptoms and is self-isolating.   Tuesday 31 March/1st April: Durham The police have said that on 31 March they were “made aware of reports” of Cummings’s presence in the area and had then contacted the family to “reiterate the appropriate advice around essential travel”.   2 April: During the night, Mr Cummings' four-year-old son "threw up and had a bad fever". Following medical advice, an ambulance took the child to hospital. He was accompanied by Mr Cummings' wife   3 April: Mr Cummings' son spent the night in hospital and woke up the next day having "recovered". He was tested for coronavirus and his mother, who was with him at the hospital, was told "they should return home". According to Mr Cummings, there were no taxis so he "drove to the hospital, picked him up and returned home". He said he "did not leave the car or have any contact with anybody on this short trip".   Sunday 5 April: The ‘Abba’ sighting (despite claims of ten days where he couldn’t get up with a high fever) Cummings alledgedly seen in Garden with AbbA blaring But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. Which would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April, … Although the claimed 10 days after the 28th – the earliest point at which Cummings was said to have been symptomatic – would be the 7 April. The Guardian approaches Downing Street about the story, only to be told by a spokesman: “It will be a no comment on that one.” Mr Cummings said "after I started to recover, one day in the second week, I tried to walk outside the house". He confirmed he, his wife and his son went for a walk into woods owned by his father and it was at this point he was seen by passers-by but his family "had no interaction with them". The exact date is not clear but his second week isolating in Durham would have between 4-11th   6 April: At some point in the week leading up to this date, Mr Cummings discussed his decision to travel to Durham with the prime minister. "When we were both sick and in bed," he said, "I mentioned to him what I had done. Unsurprisingly given the condition we were in, neither of us remember the conversation in any detail."   Fri April 10: Number 10 is again contacted for comment regarding Mr Cumming’s trip by the Guardian. Instead of defending the journey, officials declined to comment.   Fri 10th/Sat 11th April: The 14-day period of Cummings’s isolation would have expired on 10/11th April, assuming it is counted from when Wakefield appears to have first fallen ill on 27 March or when Cummings fell ill 24 hours later.   11 April: Believing he had recovered by this date, albeit "feeling weak and exhausted", Mr Cummings said he "sought expert medical advice". "I explained our family's symptoms and all the timings and asked if it was safe to return to work on Monday or Tuesday, seek childcare and so on. I was told that it was safe and I could return to work"   Sunday 12 April: Barnard Castle Wakefield’s birthday, according to Companies House records – they allegedly made a trip to Barnard Castle, a charming town 30 miles from the Cummings’s family property, described on the English Heritage website as having “fantastic views” and “plenty to do for families on a day out”. That detail emerged in an interview with Robin Lees, a retired chemistry teacher who lives in the town. Lees, who says he has a photographic memory, told the Guardian he was “a bit gobsmacked” to see Cummings, and then was so incensed that he made a note of the family car’s numberplate and checked it online when he got home. Cummings acknowledges he drove to Barnard Castle, 30 miles from his parents' home in Durham, with his wife and child. He explained this episode as needing to test his driving was fine before making the long drive back to London. He said he'd been having problems with his vision   Tuesday 14 April: London The Guardian asked Wakefield to confirm whether the family had been in London throughout the lockdown period, but received no reply. Cummings was photographed back in Downing Street on 14 April   Sunday 19 April: ‘bluebell’ woods - Cummings and Wakefield in Houghall woods? Could Cummings have then gone back to the north-east from London? Downing Street is emphatic that he did not. The denial came after another witness claimed to the Guardian and Sunday Mirror that they had seen Cummings and Wakefield on a country walk in Houghall Woods, a beauty spot near his parents’ property in Durham. According to this account, Cummings said: “Aren’t the bluebells lovely?” Cummings says he did not return to Durham   Monday 20 April Cummings seen in London again   May 23: Downing Street statement: “Owing to his wife being infected with suspected coronavirus and the high likelihood that he would himself become unwell, it was essential for Dominic Cummings to ensure his young child could be properly cared for.” The statement said: “At no stage was he or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported. “His actions were in line with coronavirus guidelines. Mr Cummings believes he behaved reasonably and legally.” Speaking outside his home, Mr Cummings reiterated: “I behaved reasonably and legally”. When a reporter suggested to him that his actions did not look good, he replied: “Who cares about good looks? “It’s a question of doing the right thing. It’s not about what you guys think.” Later at the daily Downing Street briefing, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Mr Cummings had the PM’s “full support” and that Mr Johnson “knew that he was unwell and that he was in lockdown”. Mr Shapps said it had always been permissible for families to travel to be closer to their relatives as long as they “go to that location and stay in that location”. Meanwhile, deputy chief medical officer for England, Dr Jenny Harries, said that travelling during lockdown was permissible if “there was an extreme risk to life”, with a “safeguarding clause” attached to all advice to prevent vulnerable people being stuck at home with no support.   Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak have tweeted their support for Mr Cummings.   Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said on Monday morning that Mr Cummings had "set out absolutely clearly and absolutely categorically he didn't break the rules and didn't break the law". The attorney general, Suella Braverman, tweet on Saturday in which she quoted the full text of the No 10 statement on Boris Johnson’s chief aide in which the prime minister said he had behaved “responsibly and legally”.   (Disgraceful) Boris Johnson said at the weekend Cummings acted “responsibly and legally and with integrity”   “The PM’s risible defence of Cummings is an insult to all those who have made such sacrifices to ensure the safety of others,” said Johne Inge, the bishop of Worcester, on Twitter.   “What planet are they on?” asked a front page headline in the Daily Mail, an influential right-wing paper usually supportive of Johnson.   https://descrier.co.uk/politics/dominic-cummings-and-wife-tried-to-cover-up-lockdown-breach-in-articles-for-the-spectator/   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/24/dominic-cummings-timeline-what-we-know-about-his-movements   https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/news/uk/timeline-the-coronavirus-lockdown-and-dominic-cummings-trip-to-durham/   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52784290   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/25/attorney-general-faces-calls-to-resign-defends-dominic-cummings-suella-braverman   https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-health-coronavirus-britain-cummings/what-planet-are-they-on-no-respite-for-johnson-and-aide-idUKKBN2310UE   https://cyprus-mail.com/2020/05/25/what-plant-are-they-on-press-slams-johnson-and-cummings/

Halifax Liquid Gold Account 1998 Terms and Conditions needed.

Hello, can anyone who had one of these Halifax Liquid Gold Accounts in 1998 or at least knows anything about those 1998 terms and conditions help.

 

I believe, in 1998, that joint Halifax Liquid Gold account holders had to all attend the bank and sign a counter mandate, in the presence of the Bank Clerk, to make a withdrawal but unfortunately no longer have written proof of this.

 

Having read on this forum that at least two other people had problems with getting their money out of one of these accounts in 1998 (posted in 2006) because of this very same condition, I decided to post this thread.

 

The Halifax, unhelpfully, have advised me they no longer have copies of their 1998 Terms and Conditions and therefore cannot provied me with any information on this matter.

 

I desparately need to locate these old Halifax Liquid Gold Joint Account Terms and Conditions in order to defend a Court Action being brought against me and hope someone reading this may be able to help.

 

I am very new to communicating via Forums but many thanks to all you people out there and to the CAG.

Thank you.

Sorry, No it isn't the Halifax bringing the claim against me. It's the other person named on the Halifax Liquid Gold Account who is claiming I made a withdrawal in 1998 without their knowledge. I dispute this strongly and it would help my defence if I can produce evidence, to show, that such a transaction would not have been sanctioned by the Halifax without the other persons attendance at the bank to give their signature.

 

Yesterday I saw a thread on this forum dated 2006 from a girl whose Mum had one of these accounts with a work colleague who became too ill to attend the bank. This Halifax clause prevented the girl's Mum from making a withdrawal in 1998 (even though she had a letter from her colleague saying she could) and the Halifax had kept her Mum's (works) money.

 

As I'm so new to this site I don't know how or if I am allowed to contact that person and just hoped beyond hope that someone else would know something that might help.

Sadly you dont have sufficient privilige to contact anyone at this time However, if you would like for me to send a message for you, please say and I will - you had best let me know who the other user is as well in order for me to do this:) .

 

I am very surprised that Halifax wouldnt have a copy of their terms and contract from that far back if only for their own records!. I will also flag your thread for others on the site team see if they have any advice for you.

OMG how kind of you to offer to help, thank you so much.

 

I really appreciate your offer and would be delighted if you are able, on my behalf, to contact the user who posted the reply I mentioned. The details you asked for are as follows:

 

The thread appears under "The Consumer Forums" "Bank and Finance Subforums" "Halifax Bank and Bank of Scotland" "Banks, Loans & Credit" and is titled "can they do this is it legal" and appears to have been started on 28/08/2006 at 14:27 by user Kayjay who also seems to have encountered the need for two signatures being required to make a withdrawal from a joint Halifax Liquid Gold Account in 1998.

 

However it was a reply to Kayjay's thread from user wxantia dated 24th September 2006 at 23:08 which I read yesterday that prompted me to join in this forum.

 

With regard to why the Halifax are unable to provide the information I require; their letter says they no longer have any details of the Terms and Conditions relating to the Halifax Liquid Gold for 1998 and cannot say whether or not all signatories had to attend at the bank to authorise a withdrawal.

 

The post from wxantia seems to suggest, the Halifax prevented her mum from accessing money she held in a joint Liquid Gold Account because it was a condition in 1998 that all signatories had to actuallly attend at the bank to authorise a withdrawal, consequently because her mum couldn't comply with this conditon the Halifax retained the money in that account.

 

I genuinely remember it was a condition in 1998 and although my case is different to wxantia's mum and I think the bank treated her very unfairly I am hopeful this lady may hold some information from the bank which she could share with me.

 

I know this is supposed to be a quick reply but can I just say that you will never know how grateful I am for your offer of help, especially today being Christmas Eve . Thank you so much.

I am just thinking aloud here..

 

The person who is bringing the claim against you will have to have proof that you did indeed make a withdrawal, have you been provided with all the information they have ?

 

Whatever they have mentioned on their particulars of claim, you can request.

 

I think you would probably do this using CPR31.14 or CPR part 18 where a document hasnt been mentioned.. but on which you require information. If you need help doing this, just ask and we can help you format the requests.

 

I have found this document online - apparently the terms and conditions apply to all Halifax accounts up to and including 2011.

 

On page 33 for Joint accounts.. this is stated..

 

16.3 We may agree with you that we can

accept the instructions or signature of any

one of you (or a set number of you if

more than two people invest in a joint

account). Otherwise, we will only accept

the instructions or signatures of all of you

 

(for example, to make a

withdrawal or to

 

close your account).

 

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]40187[/ATTACH]

 

I have sent a message to wxantia ,please understand that this user has not been on the forum since 2007 - they might well have changed their notification/registration email address. Hopefully this is not the case here.

If there were no cards issued on the account - then it will because all the parties to the account would need to sign/be present to withdraw funds.

Thank you citizenb and IdaInFife.

 

My head is buzzing now having read your latest posts and I've got all sorts going on in there.

 

I must make an effort to go to bed as I need to at least try to look bright and interested tomorrow, for the family Christmas day dinner, however I cannot do that until I have said a massive thank you once again for being so kind and to also say Bless You for taking so much time to help me sleep a little bit better tonight.

 

Citizenb - Thank you for trying to contact wxantia. (Fingers crossed)

 

I'm amazed - The information you found so quickly ref all Halifax accounts upto 2011 is very, very, helpful and I shall try to request this from the Halifax or download it from their site (if I can find it on there).

 

There were no cards issued on the account I held with the other person, we had to both go to the bank together to make withdrawals.

 

Is the information you quoted "If there were no cards issued on the account - then it will be because all parties to the account would need to sign/be present to withdraw funds" also on the Halifax website?

 

The amount in question was actually paid from the account by a bank cheque. which I acknowledged at a previous unrelated hearing. I never suspected the other party would suggest (5 years after that hearing) that they didn't authorise or know about that withdrawal in 1998.

 

The other party is relying on the fact that I acknowledge the withdrawal in my evidence (5 years ago) and not on any other proof in their Particulars of Claim so far.

 

Would I be able to ask the other party under CPR's to produce their evidence (from the Halifax) to support what they are saying, as against me trying to find the evidence to prove that we both had to sign?????

 

IdaInFife - thank you too. The bell did ring and I have some recollection now that the Liquid Gold Account may have been opened with what was then either the Leeds, the Holbeck or a combination of Leeds & Holbeck Building Society.

 

Once again thank you, to both of you and the CAG. Best wishes for Christmas

The information I found is in the pdf that I downloaded from internet, whether it is on the Halifax Website I dont know.

 

If you could let us know what the opposition say in their Particulars of Claim, then we can advise what you can ask for by way of CPR31.14 and what you would need to request by CPR 18. If you are concerned about posting on the main forum - then send it to me or any other Site team member by way of private message and we can sort it from there for you. You are able to contact site team by private message.

Citizenb,

 

Thank you for your help and the suggestions given in your post early on Christmas morning.

I have felt so guilty about intruding on anyone over the Christmas period that I have deliberately stopped myself from replying until now.

 

However I have been busy. I have prepared an SAR for the Halifax which will be sent Recorded Delivery tomorrow and l have looked (for hours) at the CPR's you referred to in an ealier post.

 

As you realised the Claimant's Particulars of Claim are not something which I would wish to highlight (at this time) on the open forum and although I have been helped because others have shared their experiences on the CAG forums, now is not quite the right time for me to divulge that information publicly.

 

However if you see this post and say ok, then I would like to take up your offer to PM you so that I can explain in more detail the claim being brought against me (and others).

 

Thank you

Thanks for the help, I have responded as you suggested so hopefully will be able to private message you the contents of the Particulars of Claim.

 

However just to keep yourself and others on the forum informed, the opposition draft directions that were enclosed with their latest Allocation Questionnaire suggested Standard Disclosure by List to take place no later than 15th February 2013.

 

With this in mind a Subject Accress Request was sent to the Halifax yesterday via Recorded guaranteed next day delivery and every bit of information I found on the CAG forums was used to prepare that request.

 

I used the SAR template suggestions on the forums, to base the body of the request and took note of all the advice given on the forums re: attempting to get the request actioned quickly and in line with the DATA Protection Act.

 

I enclosed a cheque for £10.00 wrote on the back of the cheque it had to be used by Halifax for SAR purposes only and said if I didn't hear from them by 15th January I would assume the request met their requirements, the cheque had been cashed and the SAR reply timescale of 40 days had begun.

 

However having spent hours on the CAG forums trying to figure out which user got the best/most complete/quickest response to an SAR I came to the conclusion that Halifax plc and banks in general deliberately make life very difficult for the average customer to get their Subject Access Request to the right department at the first attempt.

 

In the end I sent my SAR by the method mentioned earlier addressed to Sir James Crosby, CEO Halifax Group Limited, Halifax Plc, Trinity Road, Halifax, HX1 2RG with a request within the letter for Sir James Crosby to kindly forward the request, through those means available to him, to the correct recipient department in order to enable his organisation to comply quickly with Statute Law contained within the U.K. Data Protection Act.

 

Fingers crossed but don't hold your breath

Excellent, it would be brilliant if Sir James Crosby felt it necessary to ask why people are sending mail direct to him and why arent they dealing with this type of enquiry promptly. I look forward to any updates :)

you have many images too rather than many single pdfs

.

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

Thanks for your post - Unfortunately I'm not very tech savvy and am unable to action your request. Is it possible for you to contact citizenB (a site team member who knows my case) for a bit of an update on my position?

 

Thanks very much

This post is to just say thank you to all the good folk who share their information on these forums.

 

I sent a SAR, by Guaranteed Next Day Delivery, on 2nd Jan 2013, to Sir James Crosby, Chief Executive Officer, Halifax Group Limited, Halifax Plc, Trinity Road, Halifax HX1 2RG and have received a reply today saying they will provide the Subject Data by 12th February 2013 under the 40 day rule

 

 

I was really surprised to hear back so quickly but without all of you sharing your experiences (that I read, read and read again) I doubt I would have known how to make the SAR.

 

I definitely could not have covered all the points I made in the letter including (importantly) those that helped me pre-empt all the delaying tactics these big organisations practice when faced with a SAR.

 

I know (one swallow doesn't make a summer) so will post an update whether or not the end product arrives but in between times thanks again all caggers and all CAG site team members.
