Trading Standards Scotland Welcome Nuisance Calls Action Plan

Trading Standards Scotland has today welcomed the Scottish Government's Nuisance Calls Action Plan.

Cllr Kelly Parry, Cosla’s Spokesperson for Community Wellbeing and Chair of the Trading Standards Scotland Governance Board said:

 “I warmly welcome the launch of the Nuisance Calls Action Plan today which clearly demonstrates the importance of partnership working.

In addition, I am glad that Scottish Government recognises the previous good work of Trading Standards services in Scotland in disseminating call blockers. And I welcome the opportunity for the service to disseminate a further 500 devices in partnership with social work, healthcare and charitable agencies working with the vulnerable.  

The call blockers don’t just help those who receive them; the devices record the numbers they block enabling Trading Standards to work with the Information Commissioners Office to identify and tackle the perpetrators.”
