Which? response to the fine issued today by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) to Tameside Energy Services Ltd

Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd said:

“We’re pleased to see the Information Commissioner taking action against companies that are bombarding people with nuisance calls and texts.

“But with more than eight in 10 of us receiving an unwanted call in the last month, we now need a tougher new approach from the Government, regulators and industry with new laws and new technology to prevent people being plagued by this menace in the first place.”
