HC Deb 05 July 1976 vol 914 cc380-1W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will reimburse local authorities the full cost of administering the Consumer Credit Act from the licence fees received by Her Majesty's Government under the Act.

Mr. John Fraser

The local authorities are not responsible for administering the Act. It does, however, give them an enforcement rôle, but there is no power of reimbursement from licence fees.
