Chris Lees, Research Officer, Money and Mental Health
Submission to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy consultation on Reforming Competition and Consumer Policy
1 October 2021
Money and Mental Health has responded to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on its proposed changes to competition and consumer law. Considering people with mental health problems are more vulnerable to financial harms online, we support changes that make it easier to manage online subscriptions, and crack down on fake reviews. We also call for the CMA to review existing consumer protections in online spaces like shopping sites, to ensure they are fit for the digital age.
