Thank you for your e-mail to David Moulsdale dated 16 August 2014 (12.43).
Please note that the Data Protection Act 1998 entitles Optical Express to charge a fee of up to £10 for responding to subject access requests. While Optical Express has waived the levying of such a fee in the past, an increase in the number of subject access requests received has resulted in Optical Express reviewing its policy and electing to impose a fee going forward.
We will provide you with copies of any images that were captured of you by our staff at 22 Harley Street on 14 August 2014 if you pay the £10 subject access fee. Please make your cheque payable to "Optical Express". This should be included with a letter of request marked for my attention and be sent to the following address;
200 St Vincent Street
With regard to any images captured by our staff of those individuals who accompanied you, we are unable to provide you with copies of their images unless you provide us with evidence that they authorise you to act on their respective behalves for the purposes of making subject access requests to Optical Express generally or specifically with regard to this particular request. We will only accept a written letter of authorisation - a scan of an original sent as an e-mail attachment is acceptable. Please note that each such individual must also pay a subject access fee of £10, as further outlined above. We will also require you to provide a recent photograph of each such individual in order that we are able to distinguish that individual from others within the image and thereby provide each individual with his / her respective image.
Please note that we have 40 calendar days to respond to your subject access request from the date that we receive your payment of the subject access fee.

NB: "...an increase in the number of subject access requests" will of course be a reference to the many damaged patients asking for copies of their records
I will be seeking legal advice re the legality of someone taking my photo without my permission and then asking me to pay for copies of same.
All other protestors who were present that day please contact me for details:

After embarrassing Optical Express the 'Like' was removed earlier today, presumably by a red faced Fiona herself.

In 2012 Optical Express appointed Lord Jack McConnell as a non-executive director. An insider told me this was because David Moulsdale knew I would eventually succeed in getting My Beautiful Eyes Campaign to parliament, which I did on 20 November 2013 thanks to John McDonnell MP.
I'm told that Jack haunts the Westminster corridors attempting to lobby on behalf of Moulsdale.
For more than two years I have fought for press cover in the UK, during which time three major Scottish publications interviewed damaged Optical Express patients for stories which never materialised. The journalists who wrote them were never told why not.
Perhaps the McConnells' recently published dinner list can shed light on this, as Ministers, newspaper editors and other influential people break bread with David Moulsdale.

She replied: "...never had any reported cases of it going wrong".
I asked: "Never?":
