Mr Neal is giving evidence to the Home Affairs Committee in a one-off session on immigration after being sacked by James Cleverly. The home secretary said Mr Neal had “breached the terms of appointment and lost the confidence of the home secretary” after Mr Neal warned of “dangerous” failings by border force that he claimed were allowing “high-risk” aircraft to land in Britain without security checks. The Home Office had “categorically rejected” the claims, saying that Mr Neal “has chosen to put misleading data into the public domain”.

    • "In an explosive revelation, Mr Staunton also alleged that the current Post Office CEO threatened to resign over a HR investigation into his own conduct. Mr Staunton said Post Office chief executive Nick Read had fallen out with the HR director “and she produced a document that was 80 pages in length” and there was just one paragraph in there about his own conduct and use of “politically incorrect comments”. Mr Staunton said Mr Read was “really quite upset” and threatened to resign a number of times. But just an hour before Mr Staunton’s testimony, Mr Read had denied - under oath - that he had ever having tried to resign."   I’m victim of smear campaign says sacked Post Office chair as he accuses CEO of lying WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK Henry Staunton, sacked by business secretary Kemi Badenoch, gives evidence to Commons committee     see also from the post above "Carl Creswell, an official from the Department for Business and Trade said Tidswell had told Ben Tidswell that some board members might resign if Henry Staunton were not sacked)" Tidswell says he was right (See 11.14am.)"   So baden-ouch seems to be at the very least twisting the truth - no surprise there    
    • As Bazooka Boo said much of the PCN missing and it is the missing pieces that can help your case since the PCN is governed by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 . If the wording does not comply,  you as keeper are not liable to pay the PCN. Even if you were the driver as Courts do not accept that the keeper and the driver are the same person it will be pretty hard to prove that you were the driver. All it needs for you to know the whether the PCN is compliant is to post up the whole PCN front and back.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I ordered a spare car part last Friday.

I spoke to someone on the phone saying that the estimated delivery date will be 22nd-24th August.

Tuesday I receive an email from customer service asking to confirm the part no. so the order could be processed. I had already done this on the phone and assumed it was all sorted.

The next day I received an email saying its been processed and is expected 3rd September.  I need it before then and I have emailed and called but I can't get hold of anyone. The delivery just said standard UK delivery £12 so I didn't expect it to take this long. 

I've found somewhere else to buy it next day delivery and I'm thinking if I can get hold off this company to cancel my order or send it back when it arrives.

What rights do I have?

It says returns subject to 20% handling fee at the managers discretion. 

If I order the other part I've found might I have trouble getting my money back?

This is an online purchase. You have 14 days from the date of satisfactory delivery of the item to return it and to demand a refund whatever the reason.
Because the item has even been delivered, you are entitled to cancel the order straightaway and demand a refund.
Contact them by email immediately. Tell them that you have tried to contact them but to no avail but that you are now cancelling the order and you expect a refund.

No doubt you will find it difficult to get the refund from them. Contact your bank if you don't hear from the supplier within 24 hours and begin the chargeback.
Your bank won't be very pleased but stand your ground and get your money back

 I have not yet received the item

I can cancel via email and then request a charge back if they don't respond to the email within 24 hours?

I paid by credit card

Just reading about chargeback, it was over £100  it's saying I can claim under section 75.

Is the process still the same

In your message to them, tell them that if they don't let you have the refund you will be contacting your card issuer and asking for them to deal with it under section 75 Consumer Credit Act.
Let us know what happens

OK thanks. Is it still the same process as according to which it says if you haven't received your refund after 30 days, but then I guess this situation is different as the item has not yet arrived?

Sorry I really don't understand. What same process – and who is it that "it says if…" Et cetera?

section 75 is NOT the same as chargeback no.

a section 75 in immediate refund by the credit card company.

the company that is subject to the section 75 refund then has 30 days to object to your card company clawing the money back from them and re crediting it to your account.

  • dx100uk changed the title to Onesgroup.co.uk - online order - Told wrong delivery date - what are my rights to return/cancel

Sorry what I meant is that you said in an earlier post that I can email the company and ask for a refund and then if I don't hear after 24 hours I can claim a refund.

The link for chargeback takes you the which? Website and it says about section 75

it says is your claim from 30 days.

What I am asking is can I still claim under section 75 after 24 hours of not hearing from them?

Do I need to give them maybe 24 hours to reply to my email? I have been chasing them for a few days but only this morning sent them an email to request to cancel it. Should I wait till tomorrow. What if they dispute the section 75 refund by saying they have dispatched it already?

Seems like there is a whole long form to request refund from tsb section 75. Am I asking for a refund based on the fact they aren't replying to my calls or emails to cancel the order? Or that I was originally told an earlier delivery date (although I don't have proof as it was over the phone).

You are asking for a refund on the basis that you have bought an item which is not being delivered on a particular day as promised. You are therefore cancelling the order but they are not responding.
You should also complain that they have taken the money from your credit card account before they have even dispatched the order and this is contrary to the credit card regulations as well

OK thanks. I think I can do it through live chat they are asking a series of questions. Shall I choose option 1

Which of the following options best describes what happened?
1. The goods were not delivered.
2. Only part of order was delivered.
3. The goods were delivered late or to the wrong address, so became valueless to me.
4. The goods were faulty/damaged or different to what I ordered.
5. The goods were counterfeit.

Just to update the current situation. I submitted the form a few days ago but I haven't heard from the bank yet. I never heard back from the company about asking to cancel and today it has arrived in the post what are my rights now? I never actually accepted the delivery I live in a block of flats and the driver didn't ring on he just left it downstairs. Can I still get the money from the bank and will I have to pay to return it?

Write to the supplier and tell them that the item has still not been delivered to you. You understand it may have been left in a common area of the flats in which you live but that is their responsibility.

You have already put them on notice that you have cancel the order as you are entitled to under the distance selling rules.

You are still waiting for a refund but in the meantime you are planning to your credit card issuer.

Complain to the credit card issuer

By the way, if you are instructed to return it then they must provide their label and make the arrangements.

The new circumstances undertake the return yourself because if it ends up going astray then you will be responsible.

Just received a reply from tsb.

Thank you for contacting us about your Credit Card Dispute. We are governed by MasterCard's rules and regulations which advise we must allow the merchant 30 days from the date you made the purchase, to deliver the goods. Unless you have an email from the merchant advising goods were to be delivered on a specific date that has already passed, we ask that you wait until 17/09/2023 as this will have been 30 days from when you ordered the goods. If you have not received the goods by this date, please contact us by email at [email protected] and we will be happy help.

 

I've emailed the company again but still no reply. How should I proceed? It seems that tsb are focusing on the item not being delivered but what about the fact that they didn't reply to my cancellation request?

Write to them – and tell them that despite the MasterCard rules and regulations, they must have regard to the law and in particular the distance selling rules under the consumer contracts regulations.

You have given a valid cancellation request to the supplier. They have not responded. You are now instructing your bank to abide by their obligations under section 75 consumer credit act which override any credit card rules and regulations.

Note that this won't make a lot of difference but at least you get it down on paper.

Also, tell your bank that you are starting an immediate complaint and you want it sent to the ombudsman.
