Government publishes call for evidence on improving terms and conditions.

In the call for evidence the Government says that it is “seeking a better understanding of how T&Cs can be made more accessible for consumers”.  It includes a number of proposals along with more general questions on how respondents approach T&Cs and what might work better for them.

The Government is also proposing additional enforcement tools, including civil fining powers for breaches of consumer protection legislation.

Views are sought from the public, consumer representatives, businesses, trade bodies and regulators.  The consultation closes on 25 April 2016.  To access the consultation documentation, click here.
