Chris Seeking Practical Protection For Park Home Residents
To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, for what reason the request by National Trading Standards for funding to enable it to resource an investigation into Park Home residents’ pitch fee agreements has been refused; and what steps his Department is taking to ensure that consumer legislation to protect park home residents is enforced.
NTS operates independently and receives funding from the Department to respond to breaches of consumer law significant at a national or regional level. NTS base enforcement decisions on an intelligence-led assessment which determines their priorities.
The Government is seeking to strengthen consumer rights and their enforcement through the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill, including through enabling enforcement agencies to impose tougher fines on noncompliant businesses.
