Re: Census Forms

We received ours, 3 copies in 3 envelopes, (3 forms all with different barcodes) all with slight variation of our address.
Not sure what to do. Am open to amusing (and legal) suggestions.
From the form:- You could face a fine if you don’t participate or supply false information

Re: Census Forms

There is usually a number of local co-ordinator to contact if you have queries!  Strange that you should get 3 different addresses like that!

Re: Census Forms

As one can complete form on line I suppose one could complete a form with silly answers and deny all knowledge of it when queried  Smiley

Based on my form it looks easy:
1. Contact one of the query options on the front (phone is probably easiest) for advice.
2. Fill them all in, marking 2 (with the least accurate addresses) as no-one lives here (question H1)

Re: Census Forms

For those who've received theirs, who pays the return postage if completed "by hand"?
Be interesting to return it without stamps if a postage paid envelope(s) are not supplied..
Otherwise may just as well complete it online and throw the paper in the recycle bin.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

That's definitely an RTFM, it even explains on the front of the form.
And the answer is - we all do via taxes!

Re: Census Forms

Just received my form, i'm in Harwich, will take me hours to fill that in Grin surprised they did not ask what colour pants I have on Grin I don't think that this will be a 100% census, with all of the illegals we get through Harwich and Felixstowe unless they give them a form as they come into the country in the back of the lorries

Re: Census Forms

I hate filling these things In, Why don't they give us more of an Incentive, Instead of saying you could be fined for not filling It In, How about £5.00 worth of vouchers for filling It In?
