    Yes, this has been the case for years. It's called the sorting office at royal mail, which is the reason why post takes fairly long to get to the department it's meant for. If you write confidential on the envelope apparently it's not opened, altho i have no idea how true that part is.

    If you are talking about the post handling section of dwp I would think that's normal.

    They haven't got time to be reading them. But that's why it takes up to 10 days to process.
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    well I was lead to belive they are postal workers .my thoughts were our personal details ie live  alone disabled  ect never know nutters a d freaks  every where our whole lives are on that form told have to open and put in correct files in order to then be sent to w.d.p.office  cant even recall which programe but recall watching thinking really ..postal workers not d .w.p staff . only takes one dishonest worker just thought this strange maybe it's me over thinking it..
