National Clamps NEWS:
Correspondence between: The Security Industry Authority (SIA) and Trevor Whitehouse
The fact that Seven of my 'Front Line' staff have licence's that will expire between June and the proposed ban on vehicle immobilisation has presented the SIA and my company with a massive headache.
I have therefore taken it upon myself to renew our ACS status hoping that this will provide an amicable and reasonable solution to the problem of unlicensed staff carrying out licensable activities during this period of limbo. I implore that we apply the same special dispensation which is usually bestowed upon an ACS member whilst an application for a license is pending.
Following months of paper trails, filling, chasing up reports etc. ANPR Ltd (Our ticket issuing side) Was granted UKAS: ISO 9001 Status and The British Parking Association approved Operator Scheme (AOS) Whilst National Clamps passed its third year Audit.
When a Bill has completed all its parliamentary stages in both Houses, it must have Royal Assent before it can become an Act of Parliament (law). Royal Assent is the Monarch's agreement to make the Bill into an Act and is a formality. There is no set time period between the consideration of amendments to the Bill and Royal Assent – it can even be a matter of minutes after Ping Pong is complete.
Its the horrific cost's attached to the towing away and storage that constitutes theft and attracts a media frenzy.
The long awaited legal precedents following the arrests, prosecutions and respective Jail sentences have cleaned up the industry far faster than any government. The consequences are now indefensible and the cowboys have rode off into the sunset, leaving behind those who want to provide as service setting aside profits.
Civilly / Legally and with blessing of the BPA, the AA and the media we can charge up to £125 per clamp. But like many other respectful companies National Clamps only charge £80
We are 18 months down the line from the Lynne Featherstone outburst.
I have fought the proposal all the way... I've lobbied MPs, formed pressure groups, set up an e' petition, organised Westminster protests, placed £10,000 worth of ads in Political Magazines and thrown £30,000 at a Judicial Review and the decision is now in the balance with 6 in10 MPs wanting the ban, therefore: I can do no more!
National Clamps will be OK. We are currently negotiating clamping contracts with Councils using 'Bye-laws', therefore gaining lawful authority to clamp. For everyone else its tickets, mayhem or Bailiffs.
