UK - The Farmers Union of Wales has accused the National Fallen Stock Company of &quot;a disgraceful breach of confidentiality&quot;. Susan Jones, executive officer of the union&#39;s Montgomeryshire branch, claims that when a member received written acknowledgement of his registration for the Fallen Stock Scheme, the envelope also contained a Devon farmer&#39;s banking details. &quot;The member registered by telephone and was horrified when his membership confirmation came in the post to find that corresponding information about another applicant was attached,&quot; said Mrs Jones. He contacted the company and was advised to destroy it. He was assured that a duplicate would be sent to the West Country farmer. &quot;This is just not good enough at a time when we are all being urged to take great care to prevent our personal and financial information falling into the hands of fraudsters.&quot; <i>Source: FWi</i>
