COSLA COMMENT ON LAUNCH OF SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT'S 'NUISANCE CALLS COMMISSION ACTION PLAN'

Councillor Kelly Parry, COSLA’s Spokesperson for Community Wellbeing and Chair of the Trading Standards Scotland Governance Board said:

 “I warmly welcome the launch of the Nuisance Calls Action Plan today which clearly demonstrates the importance of partnership working.

“In addition, I am glad that Scottish Government recognises the previous good work of Trading Standards services in Scotland in disseminating call blockers. And I welcome the opportunity for the service to disseminate a further 500 devices in partnership with social work, healthcare and charitable agencies working with the vulnerable.  

“The call blockers don’t just help those who receive them; the devices record the numbers they block enabling Trading Standards to work with the Information Commissioner's Office to identify and tackle the perpetrators.”
