JonAshworth No surprise. Also, Many will refuse to use the app. Particular thanks should be given to DC. JonAshworth It's all an illusion. People most at risk were sent letters months ago, then told by texts to expect a call. Probably from SERCO these calls from 03333050466 terminate within seconds of answering.
