§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection which provisions of the Consumer Credit Act are still matters for consultation with the interests concerned; and when she expects to conclude all such consultations.
§ Mr. John Fraser
The intention is to implement the Act in stages. My Department has yet to consult on most aspects relating to documentation and performance of contracts and certain matters relating to ancillary businesses. The Office of Fair Trading is also consulting on matters relating to the Director General's responsibilities under the Act as they arise.
