Census forms still being delivered

While the great majority of Census forms will be delivered by today (7 August), Collectors are still delivering in some areas.

Concerned members of the public have been calling the Census Inquiry Service and have been experiencing some delays.

More staff are being put on to handle the calls. If you are unable to get through please call later.

"Do not worry, you will get your Census form," the Head of Census Paul Williams said.

"Our Collectors are doing their best to get a form to you. We expect that all forms will be delivered by 8 August."

Travellers inquiring about forms should note that forms will be available at their place of stay.

Support for the Census has been excellent and we thank in advance people for filling in their forms tomorrow night.
