Civil Enforcement Remedies - consultation on extending the range of remedies available to public enforcers of consumer law (BIS) - TSI response - December 2012

TSi response (PDF 148KB). TSI welcomes the proposal to improve consumer redress by extending the range of Civil Enforcement Remedies available to enforcers. Our members have long been aware that although criminal courts have the power to award damages to consumers who fall victim to crime, they mostly decline to do so. Where they do exercise such powers it does not necessarily bring justice to the case.
