Unsolicited Junk Faxes

EDM number 900 in 2001-02, proposed by Frank Roy on 27/02/2002.

That this House notes with concern the increasing amount of unsolicited junk faxes sent to both domestic and commercial premises; further notes that many adults and children unknowingly call premium rated numbers at a cost of ú1.50 per minute, and that the resulting fax-back time is often stated as no more than 200 seconds; is gravely concerned that despite asking to be permanently deleted from fax databases, many unsuspecting recipients continue to receive unsolicited faxes; and urges Her Majesty's Government to introduce further statutory controls against such an abuse of access.

This motion has been signed by a total of 102 MPs.
