Telephone Cold Calling

EDM number 1373 in 2015-16, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 13/04/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Consumers, Elderly people, Regulation and Telecommunications.

That this House notes the massive increase in recent years of the volume of telephone cold calling carried out by sales persons on behalf of a range of commercial companies, to the extent that numerous people, particularly elderly citizens, can receive unwanted telephone calls on a daily basis, sometimes leaving them feeling vulnerable and under pressure; and calls for a review of the Telephone Preference Service to ensure that those signing up to a service that is supposed to prevent repeated unwanted calls get the protection they want.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
