HMRC not looking good either

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Information Commissioner's Office has had to shut its helpline today because of industrial action.

Nine out of ten Metropolitan Police workers who deal with public enquiries are also out on strike. Police officers are covering the service, the Met said.

A spokeswoman for the ICO said the helpline normally deals with between 850 and 1000 calls a day and is run by between 14 and 20 staff. More lines, and more staff, will be on duty tomorrow to deal with an expected increase in calls.

Courts, job centres and Welsh museums are also being hit by the walkout by the Public and Commercial Services Union. Two teachers unions are also taking action today.

90 per cent of PCS members at the Department of Work and Pensions are on strike today. The Home Office has been hit with some buildings in Liverpool closed for the day.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs is managing without 85 per cent of its staff, the PCS said.

The PCS called on the Coalition government to engage properly with negotiations over pension reform. ®
