10 Downing Street Update

I had an email today confirming that the email I sent to Mr Cameron is being looked at. So it's a start. You can read the email I sent to Mr Cameron here. The email I got back is below.


Dear Findlay

I am writing on behalf of the Prime Minister to thank you for your email of 21 May.

Your email is receiving attention and a reply will be sent as soon as possible.

Kind regards

Communications Officer
Direct Communications Unit


  1. It's a start. I think you are the sort of person who doesn't easily give up, Findlay. Good luck to you! :)

  2. 140 characters via Twitter isn't enough. I reckon you should send an email back thanking them for acknowledgement of your email etc and mention you're visiting the House of Commons to see your MP on the same issues and cheekily ask if it might be possible that David perhaps hands over a reply in person......you never know I bet they don't get too many youngsters taking an early interest in politics, something you could perhaps also mention ;-)

  3. Well done. Though you will probably receive a standard reply/letter in a few weeks/months time. Probably on beautiful 110 gramme paper in lovely gilted envelope. If your persistent you may well get the same letter again, possibly acknowledged by someone else in the government. This is precisely what happened to me when I wrote to Henry Bellingham about the issuing of licences to kill Buzzards. Still, Findlay you are young and optimistic, sadly I am no longer either of these!! Very best of luck & keep up the pressure!

  4. Let's hope you get a decent reply. You deserve it.

  5. Great stuff Findlay, but I think perhaps you should drop him another line as another male has gone missing in the same circumstances as the Bowland three, this one from the RSPB Geltsdale Reserve in Cumbria.

    Keep on keeping on Findlay.

  6. Well done Findlay, I agree with you.

  7. Don't be put off. You will get a reply and I think what Douglas sya is good advise. Battle on. In life, if you don't ask, you won't get!

  8. Well done, at least you've got a rely I'm still waiting
