Do Not Call Register

Some of you may recall my post on privacy legislation. I was doing a little hunting around, thinking, Surely I’m not the only one who is really irritated with these people calling me from call centres trying to get me to change phone providers?

Turns out that I’m not the only one by any means. With bipartisan support, bills were introduced to Parliament on 25 May to establish a “Do Not Call Register”, to be administered by ACMA. I fully support this initiative.

Watch this space. Seems that there won’t be any calls for “Mrs Foo” any more.
