Dear City of York Council,

nder foi or in the public interest can you please answer the following questions...we have had over 20 councils now reply to the same questions within 48 hours .we hope you will do the same

1. Does your enforcement agent contract allow your enforcement agents to issue an
indemnity against prosecution for themselves without the agreement of the council in
cases where they have wrongfully seized and to vulnerable
2. Have you ever allowed bailiffs to make their own settlement agreements where goods
have to be returned?
3. Would you allow enforcement agents to breach the equalities act if it meant your
business rates were collected?
4. How would you react if they did this without you knowing?
5. Would you class a secret indemnity which achieves a gain at the cost to the
vulnerable victim a material breach of contract .?
6. Must enforcement agents always report failed levies and a full report when dealing
with vulnerable customers
thank you for your public concern in answering these questions asap.

Yours faithfully,

claire moore

Dear [email address],

this seems to be pretty common place for york council to be less than transparant

over 100 councils have answered all of these questions without fuss and obstructions yet you alone reply like that

it has become expected so no loss .

Yours sincerely,
