Complaint to the Mayor of London: Declan is engaged in a battle royal with the Mayor's Clearing House service (run by St Mungo's) over data held against us in defiance of a court order issued last May

Mayor of London Boris Johnson

Heavey v St Mungo's

Brief details of claim (proposed)

On 20 July 2015, the Claimant made a formal Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998 for any information held about him on the Defendant’s computerised database. The Claimant then discovered that personal data contained on a paper referral form dated 17 March 2014 had been inaccurately held online by the Defendant in non-compliance with a court order dated 8 May 2015. Supplemental to a Letter Before Claim, the Claimant wrote to the Defendant on 9 February 2016 about inaccurate financial data that leaves him and his wife open to accusations of deception and fraud, but to no avail. The Defendant has also rejected the Claimant’s proposal later that day for an Alternative Dispute Resolution meeting to settle this matter. The Claimant is therefore making an application to the Court for a declaration that the Defendant has acted unlawfully and an order that the data controller rectify those financial data and any other inaccurate personal data in respect of which he is the data controller, and exclude any text added by the referral worker which was not included on the handwritten form and signed off by the Claimant and his wife and co-signed by the referral worker. The Claimant seeks an award of damages for distress of not more than £1,000.
