Money Advice Service and the coordination and provision of debt advice (HM Treasury) - TSI response - January 2012

TSI response (PDF 64.4KB). TSI welcomes a coordination role for the Money Advice Service (MAS) and further provision of debt advice and education, provided this works alongside the work of existing bodies. TSI urges Government to make financial education part of the national curriculum. MAS has however advised that it will not be supporting the Young Consumers of the Year competition through investment in a dedicated section on money advice and TSI finds this short-sighted and very surprising.
