Conservative MP Alun Cairns wants to introduce a bill to legislate against nuisance calls and is asking for members of the public to come forward with evidence to back this bill. He says making businesses apply for permission to withhold their phone numbers could help stop us from getting them.
Alun Cairns MP says, "This is a significant issue, particularly for those who are at home during the day, many of whom are pensioners. It is not unusual for some to receive a dozen or more calls a day. The current process to complain is complicated and the laws are confusing."
