Why am I not being asked to store cookies?
Premier houseboats do not have a large corporate IT department and considering at time of this law being introduced many public service websites such as http://www.direct.gov.uk did not have this functionality in place! Premier Houseboats welcome any assistance from the EU or British government to provide further details on how to implement this requirement and will adhere fully and promptly once further details are provided. Premier houseboats have therefore made all attempts to adhere to this law.
