Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
You wish to use the Data Protection Act to obtain information not relating to you from a trade company, is that right?
no I want to know if a trade only company can in law refuse to supply me with costings of a kitchen,because they are "trade only" the installer has refused to provide me with the costings.I have costings and estimates that suggest I have been charged for goods I have not been supplied with
The contract for the kitchen is between the trade company and the installer, is that right?
Ok - its bad news I am afraid
You can only use the Data Protection Act to obtain personal information about you
Sadly it has no application on any contract between the supplier and your installer
In reality there is no way you can find out the price the installer paid - it is a matter of contract between those two. It is nothing to do with you and further even if it went to Court the installer would not be obliged to disclose anything between him and the supplier
Sadly in the circumstances the Data Protection Act does not apply here
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If I have evidence that I have been charged/invoiced for goods I said I did not want,what is my remedy to recover an overcharge of £1100.00.
Legal,small claims.What if I believe I have deliberately and knowingly been "defrauded"
