Abolish the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Quango
What does the Information Commissioners office do? It seems to take an annual fee from my business each year but little else. It stores all this data on expensive computers in Wilmslow, but for what purpose? I am sure that many businesses do not even bother to register at all.
What did we do before it existed – we carried on as usual!
I do not think that the level of fees levied to register is even sufficient to rent the offices, pay the beaurocrats and pay for the upkeep of the computer system and administration. So the taxpayers stump up the balance again.
We all insure against public and professional liability issues, surely that is sufficient.
Please Mr Clegg, let us save some taxpayers money here and scrap the laws which caused this unnecessary quango to come into existence and sweep it away. We really do not need it – it is just a luxury to provide employment and inflated pensions to a number of 'jobsworhs' . The Ministery of Administrative Affairs from 'Yes Minister' comes to mind here!
Why does this idea matter?
My idea is important to save taxpayers money and rid this country of unnecessary beaurocracy.
