Criminal Justice and Courts Bill
Citizens Advice is seriously concerned that the provisions set out in Part 4 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill will severely undermine the crucial role that judicial review plays as a check on power. The risk of these proposals is that the potential financial burden will close the door to proper accountability and justice.
Consumer Rights Bill
Citizens Advice strongly welcomes the Consumer Rights Bill. It has the potential to make it far easier for people to understand and use their rights when things go wrong. There are, however, a few small changes we would make which have the potential to have a significant positive impact for consumers.
We are very concerned about the potential impact of the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Union Administration Bill.
For our briefing for the second reading debate in Parliament and the legal opinion from NCVO:
Payday loan companies do not treat their customers fairly. Despite the payday loan industry promising to clean up its behaviour, our evidence shows that payday lenders have broken their promises. We need payday lenders to be properly regulated, and for them to stop irresponsible advertising.
