Thanks to Nigel for alerting us to this.

I also have been trying for several days, but have unearthed a contact number. Apparently they were "unaware of the problems" (what price a study, but what price error-checking?)

Feel free to ring: 01384 817403 - I believe the person responsible is Amy Shaw.

It is also imperative that as many people complete this study, Please note there are a few leading questions that could be interpreted or (mis)construed either way - as Nigel says: "Please have a look, think about it..."

I have been informed by Dudley Council that the problem has now been fixed. I have managed to submit my form, although there was no confirmation it was a successful submission.

I therefore asked the Council to confirm it has definitely been received: naturally, with each form being anonymous, this is rather difficult to ascertain. However, I have been further assured it was received.

David,

Well done for finding the phone number and getting this sorted out. Thanks also for picking up on the 'arkward', or leading questions.

Nigel

Filled and submitted with no 'obvious' problem. Was rather unimpressed by the amateurish and in some cases abstract questions!

Is anybody out there having the same difficulty answering these questions truthfully?

I find that the whole questionaire is loaded towards a done deal.

Thats the nature of questionnaires for you, they print them in such away that they get they answers they want and not the ones you want to give.
I wouldn't be surprised if they paid as much for that questionnaire to be compiled as it would cost to keep the GM going for another year.
There are plenty of spaces on the form put in there what you feel and send them a letter, I did, I haven't had a reply but then you dont expect it from a bunch of highly overpaid uncivil servants.

I've just submitted (I hope) a completed questionnaire on the proposal to close BH. 

I agree with previous postings on this thread that the whole survey is biased - some of the questions seem to be of the "when did you stop beating your wife?" kind.

I didn't get a failure notice of any kind, but I was left in some doubt as to whether my submission was actually received.
