HC Deb 06 May 2004 vol 420 c1725W
11. Mr. Plaskitt

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on responses received from businesses consulted on recommendations contained within the White Paper on reforming consumer credit legislation. [170688]

Mr. Sutcliffe

We have received a substantial number of responses to the Consumer Credit White Paper and its associated consultation. The responses represent views from a wide cross section of the credit industry; business, consumer groups and enforcement agencies.

The Department is currently analysing these comments with a view to publishing a full Government response in early June.
