It used to be known on MN as the rule of Davros blush All DLA decisions, statements, LEA letters etc come on a Friday.

I also think they spend all week sitting around drinking tea and then do the work at the end of the week grin

starlight, with the post the way it is at the moment you never know. Dd3s turned up on a friday, the day they broke for 2 weeks easter holidays hmm so much for the reply within 2 weeks!

just a thought, could you ask them to email you a copy too, they did for us, made making alterations much easier.

It's 15 days from receipt Starlight - so ignore the date. Keep the envelope though.

If you need more time to analyse it just send a letter in anyway within the 15 days saying that you disagree with the Propsed Statement and requesting a meeting with the Case Officer - no need to go in detail at all. They shoudl then offer you a selection of 3 dates to chose from.

It must have been a mistake due to postal strikes or something. I expect they WANTED it to arrive on Friday grin

DLA, CA, tax office letters, CSA, statements, transport name it
