Radio 4 “PM Programme” today at 5:40pm

Andrew Taylor will be talking today live on Radio 4 on how the law can protect people from being ripped off, and how Trading Standards officers need to be vigilant in keeping and eye out for rouge traders who seek to take advantage of consumers who might be attracted to pay money for days out and attractions that turn out to be a pale imitation of what is said in the advert. In recent times there seems to more companies and individuals who offer mouth watering days of entertainment, only for the consumer to be bitterly disappointed, and substantially out of pocket. The law needs to be more active in protecting against such practices.

While consumers are protected by law from such practices,  it is difficult to seek redress, and criminal courts have intervened by passing custodial sentences where large sums have been taken from the public.
