The Consumer Rights Bill has been introduced to the House of Commons and will now begin its Parliamentary process.
In the Bill, consumers will have the right to:
- get some money back after one failed repair of faulty goods (or one faulty replacement);
- demand that substandard services are redone or failing that get a price reduction;
- a set 30-day time period to return faulty goods and get a full refund; and
- challenge terms and conditions which are not fair or are hidden in small print.
