Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the following ICO decision which is now before the Upper Tribunal (tbc).
I call upon my MP to write to the appropriate authorities for the safety and security of the UK Government because I have identified a very serious defect with the lightning protection at the House of Lords, and in all probability at the House of Commons also. The House of Lords confirmed to me in writing that their Westminster Buildings have not been provisioned with any Lightning Risk Assessment (LRA) as defined in BS/EN 62035/2006.

In the absence if any LRA the end user and the general public’s safety has been compromised.

This becomes a national security issues because half of the British Government could be wiped out during a thunderstorm.

In essence, the Westminster Houses of Parliament are operating in a legal void.
It would automatically follow that the Parliament Building offers a serious threat of harm or death to HM The Queen and other members of the Royal Family, and I call upon my MP to bring this matter to the attention of the Royal
Household Security. I also suggest/ recommend this matter is directed to the Home Office Sec of State.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
