The government is running a two month call for evidence into the consumer credit market. Consumers are invited to contact the Department for Business Innovation and Skills with their experiences and suggestions on how this industry might be more fairly regulated.


Open date: 15 Oct 2010

Closing date: 10 Dec 2010



This call for evidence invites people to have a say on how the existing consumer credit and personal insolvency regimes might be improved and seeks views on a number of Coalition commitments, including:


  • tackling unfair bank charges;
  • introducing a seven-day cooling off period for store cards;
  • introducing a power for a regulator to cap interest rates on credit and store cards; and
  • requiring credit card providers to make electronic statements available to enable consumers to judge whether an alternative credit card would provide better value for money.
