§ 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 381W 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.
