§ 28. Mr. Rathbone
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he is satisfied with his Department's plan to encourage transfer of responsibilities from consumer advice centres to citizens advice bureaux; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Sally Oppenheim
We are not proposing any transfer of responsibilities, but any closures of consumer advice centres would create extra work for citizens advice bureaux, and we are consulting the movement on the implications of this.
