End Telephone Number Withholding by Telemarketing Companies

Stop companies being able to make cold calls while withholding their own phone number.

Why is this important?

Companies phoning up without leaving a telephone number makes it impossible to effectively report them to Telephone Preferance Society etc. There is no reason for commercial firms to have the facility to withhold the number they are calling from, so the facility should be withdrawn as so many of them abuse it.
