Public Bodies Bill - briefing for Scottish Lords

CAS’s briefing for Scottish Lords in relation to the Public Bodies Bill Stage 2 debate in the House of Lords.

The Public Bodies Bill will lead to the transfer of the consumer functions of two public bodies, Consumer Focus and the OFT, to the Citizens Advice services in the UK, including Citizens Advice Scotland. Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) is consequently expected to take on the consumer education, advocacy, advice, and information work undertaken by these organizations in Scotland. CAS has always championed consumer concerns, particularly in relation to consumer debt issues faced by CAB clients in Scotland, and with the help of adequate resources, we will be well placed to officially take on this consumer dedicated remit for people living in Scotland.
