Sorry I forgot to put "Dear James" in my title on the other previous post as I wanted James to answer, so apologies for this duplicate thread! Has the ISA been scrapped officially? I rang their helpline but it has been shut down which leads me to believe that it is being "halted" or in the queue for being scrapped by the Coalition. Yet I keep seeing application forms for teaching (in my LEA, don't know about anyone else's) that want me to fill in my ISA number, and one that says if I am not registered with them then this will bar me from getting a job with them. The trouble is, I don't ever remember receiving a ISA number, nor do I recall joining the scheme - and now it appears there is no one to talk to about it on the end of their phone line! Any advice gratefully received.
