Please state all addresses from year of birth to present date
So what's the point? I suggest that the "from year of birth" part of this question on the form is officiously intrusive, difficult to complete and so has the effect of encouraging dishonesty - if you can't remember the house number or the postcode it's tempting to erase that part of your life and tell the vetters that you lived longer in the previous address. Investigating the 'investigations' that me and my pals carried out aged 8 is so silly that it calls into question the efficacy and even the desirability of whole vetting process. When you have urban dual carriageways with absurdly low speed limits it encourages folks to break the limit there and by thin-end-of-wedge extension to break the limit and the law elsewhere.
