HC Deb 07 February 1977 vol 925 cc491-2W
24. Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if he will make regulations to implement the Consumer Credit Act.

Mr. John Fraser

Shortly I hope to make a detailed announcement about the orders and regulations soon to be made about the next stage of licensing, the credit reference agency and extortionate credit bargain provisions. Other provisions will be implemented as soon as possible, bearing in mind the need to protect consumers and have adequate consultation and the necessity to reduce the burden on local authorities and traders.
