Hiya Debs and thanks for replying to my post. The original 'No Trace' cert was issued in 2007/8 . Unfortunately, in my innocence I discarded this as I assumed the replacement - issued in May of this year, would simply be the same. This I needed for a visa interview at the US Embassy in August as they require one issued within the previous six months. I also had a response from Christian at 'Unlock' who stated that if this is now legislation, I can do nothing about it.
I have a letter prepared for ACRO via SAQ, which goes into more detail and which I would like to run by you somehow if possible.
If this is new legislation, then surely others on the Forum should have had this experience also ??
Also, having already spoken to two individuals at ACRO (who both professed no knowledge of anyone their end changing anything - or any record of who changed what when - a big blank !!) they then should be able to inform us as to who made that legislative change, why, and most importantly at whose behest.
The Federal Government of the United Staes springs to mind !!
The fact that I no longer have the original 'No Trace' should make no difference whatsoever, as I refuse to believe the British Police do not still have a record of that original issue.
Yes, I would be very grateful if you could assist me further with this Debs.
Regards. Rob Pinnock.
