Richard Burgon responds to a report from Citizens Advice on the conduct of bailiffs

Richard
Burgon MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary,
commenting on a report from
Citizens Advice on the conduct of bailiffs, said:

“This
report undermines any claims by the Tories to be on the side of ordinary
people. The last ten years have seen more vulnerable people getting into
financial difficulty. They need debt advice, not threats, to get back on track.

“It’s
clear that previous government reforms have failed and recommendations, such as
the creation of an independent regulator, merit serious consideration.”
