Yeah I have sent a copy to my MP Joan Humble, but I don`t expect much action from her as she will be losing her seat in the next election as most of Blackpool North will be a new constituency of Lancaster and Fleetwood, thus IMHO she is just seeing her time out and not rocking the boat

I totally agree with you on that olden, personally I think it's about time these MP's actually got off their fat ar*es, & started to earn their very high salaries, & our votes; if they want to keep their constituency seats that is, lmao.

OK Folks here are the latest stats on the MPs campaign. As you can see responsiveness is increasing across the board party-wise; but the proportion of MPs contacted vs. total MPs is still low. Progress is steady, results are encouraging, but overall we're still slow.

 

If you know any CAG-ger who hasn't written to their MP yet, please pass the message on for them to do so now!

I am so sorry about the small percentage contacted, but I don't know anyone on here who hasn't done so. it doesn't seem to make sense, surely the majority are aware of this, are the other sites MSE AND Penalties, writing to the MPs, Can I do anything to help?

Val, don't apologise!

 

Yes, I think with the number of subscribers that CAG has, it's pitiful that we've only managed to get to 15% of MPs contacted. We have tried various ways (and hat tips to ja-de and Lively Lad and others such as crfx here for all the work they have done on this), but we've hit a brick wall and don't seem to be able to make much more meaningful headway.

 

I'm afraid I just don't know what else we can do to persuade CAG members of the inequity of the way the waiver has been handled; and to realise that the only way to get that message across is to increase its political and media profile.

HELLO is ja-de on here now, I have just had a phone call from JESSICA MORDEN MP !! I am still in shock:eek: She is championing our cause, she said that she and others are getting together, cross party support !because they think it is unfair! and she is emailing me the details she has from some company Do you want it posted here or not when I get it?

 

This is fantastic news Olden - well done! I have not been around for a couple of weeks so I'm just catching up on stuff but this is by far the most positive thing I've seen.

 

Also your previous post about me not being eligible to take judicial review action with the OFT was a good point but I already had someone lined up who was a perfect hardship case that I could have used. Although I since informed council, his advice was that the case would almost certainly fail anyway.

Olden, I totally agree with Mac, & that's you mustn't apologise for others. It most certainly isn't any of your fault that there are some ppl here who don't want to even try to help us.

It seems to me that these ppl are making the rules up as they go along. It just doesn't seem to make sense, one minute they say that genuine hardship cases will be allowed to have a stay removed, & then the next minute are told they won't win. Can anyone please tell me where the justice has gone?

If the fact that a person is owed over £17,000 in charges, & is about to lose his home is not classed as a hardship case, well I & I'm sure many more others would like to know exactly what is classed as a hardship case. It just beggars belief that the banks are still blatantly getting away with stealing our hard-earned money, & not to forget that they are also earning interest on it.

I've had 2 more letters back from members of the Treasury Select Committee in response to my and Macboy's efforts to get the subject of the waiver on the agenda for their hearing with the FSA. Though their reponses came 2 months too late they may include it at the next hearing which is yet to be scheduled.

 

 

Dear crfx

 

FSA Complaints Handling Waiver

 

Thank you for your letter of the 4 September and I apologise for not being

able to respond sooner.

 

As you probably know, the Treasury Select Committee has been rather fully engaged in recent weeks but I do understand very much the important view that you are raising.

 

Thank you also for enclosing various correspondence but as you will know by now I'm sure, I cannot enter into full corresponence with you because of Parliamentary Conventions but I will certainly try to ensure that these matters are put on the Treasury Select Committee's list for consideration and perhaps something along these lines can be included in our future meetings with senior executives of the FSA.

 

Thank you for writing

 

With Kind Regards

 

Colin Breed MP

 

 

 

Dear crfx

 

Thank you very much for your letter dated 4 September which I have only recently received together with the copy letters from the FSA.

 

I have passed a copy of the correspondence to the clerk of the Treasury Select Committee. I am not at present certain when we shall next have the FSA before us but I will certainly look to see if these matters can be raised with them.

 

With kind regards

 

John Thurso MP

Hi ALL Just to let you know I have emailed Jessica Morden with reference to all that info she sent me concerning in particular the 'cross party support group', thanking her for the support they propose to give us and asking her if she can tell us how many MPs are involved in this. I have tried to emphasize the importance of this regards Val

Dear Jennifer

 

Thank you for email on a subject that Tom has been active.

 

I will get back in touch with you a more definitive response as soon as possible, probably within a couple of days.

 

I trust this interim acknowledgement is sufficient in the meantime.

 

Regards

 

Sam

On behalf of

TOM CLARKE MP

 

Recieved the above from the office of Tom Clarke of Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill constituency. Have also emailed the MP for Edinburgh south but no reply as yet.

Hey CRFX, what do you think of this for a quick response! I got this today from Jessica So I have her phone number and you could come to her surgery ;) ;) ;) problem is you may have to move house to do that.

 

regards Val

 

 

Thanks for the email. I'll be talking to colleagues this week to see what more I can find out. Will be in touch - or call me if you haven't heard from me in a couple of weeks and then perhaps we could meet at a surgery to discuss further.
