Attachment of earnings regulation

Remove the obligation to collect unpaid council tax from an employee by the employer.

This is a confusing regulation set up differently for the employer than the council. For example the employer is expected to deduct money according to a complicated table.

The Council is expected to allocate the money differently if there are more than one attachment of earnings in operation leading to confusion about when bills have been completed.

Why is this idea important?

Amend the working time directive applying to private hgv drivers

Amend the working time directive to exclude private HGV's

The current working time directive does not allow people to persue their hobby at the weekend if the following apply:

1. They work full time

2 They need to drive a lorry at the weekend for hobbies such as horse driving trials, motor sport, transporting steam engines, or classic farm machinery. etc

The directive says that even working in an office means that you cannot drive an HGV at the weekend. However a professional lorry driver driving all week can drive any other vehicle all weekend.

This is unfair  and unreasonable to not allow people to get out from the office and enjoy something special to them. It is unreasonable that a professional lorry driver can drive other vehicles of their own choice.
