Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

The Act itself, no. That is what Parliament decides.

You had 3 months from the date it came into force to challenge.

If the Police have not acted in accordance with it, then yes you can challenge that aspect.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

This is, to me, irrational. What do you think?

Yes I think you have an argument.
