Banks ( and some other financial services companies) can't reclaim vat, so that is a positive for HMRC right away collected by contractor - so in these cases the client and contractor DO pay a meaningful amount of VAT

The headline is somewhat mistaken in that it talks of "UK police staff" yet the article only provides information on England & Wales, nothing about Northern Ireland or Scotland which have their own separate police services.

Do "parliament street" think the UK is just England & Wales or is that just sloppy ignorance from The Register, you would think that The Register's journalists would know that, especially the bit about the ICO only covering England & Wales as far as policing FOI requests are concerned

Do you know that Hadrian's Wall is in England - up to 90 miles in places - perhaps you can explain why a Scottish Government would regulate anything in England, or indeed people in Northumberland would want regulated by a Scottish Ofcom

Best you go and read up on UK geography, then turn your attention to what's devolved to the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh and Northern Irish assemblies - then look an see how to actually increase any of the devolved governments powers
