    This is getting very Lincolnshire-ish

    Just a thought, on your account when you signed up for it, it would have told/should have said something about data protection? and how they protected your information.

    Depending on the type of job you applied for and what it said on the application form, I doubt they could pull the account. As I think this would be in breech of the above act?

    Also why would they need to know your financial situation as this will should not have a direct link to your employable status.

    If I am wrong please feel free to correct me:roll:
