Council PCN - Bills of Exchange Act 1882

j e castillo made this Freedom of Information request to Medway Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Medway Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Medway Council,

Council PCN - Bills of Exchange Act 1882

Under the FoIA I wish to know if a Council PCN produced and issued by the council conforms with the Bills of Exchange Act 1882.

I understand Councils took over the issue of Penalty Charge Notices from the Police under the decriminalised scheme this operated under The Road Traffic Act 1991 Schedule 6, but now are covered by the Traffic Management Act 2004.

By question is simple, is the actual "Charge" to which the Notices relate too, are they a Bill of Exchange covered in the Bills of Exchange Act 1882?

All recorded information you hold is required. If your Council PCNs does not conform please give the reasons why.

The Bills of Exchange Act 1882 clearly defines a Bill of Exchange in Section 3 as:

"A bill of exchange is an unconditional order in writing, addressed by one person to another, signed by the person giving it, requiring the person to whom it is addressed to pay on demand or at a fixed or determinable future time a sum certain in money to or to the order of a specified person, or to bearer."

Any "Bill" that fits this definition is then legally bound to act within the Bills of Exchange Act 1882 irrelevant of other legislation unless the said Statute repeals the Bill of Exchange Act in some way.

Many thanks for your time in answering this FOI request and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Medway Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Medway Council's handling of my FOI request 'Council PCN - Bills of Exchange Act 1882'.

I believe the answer was unsatisfactory as I was not questioning if Council PCN were lawful or not.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,
