Consumer Rights Bill

76

 

Schedule  5,  page  65,  line  13,  after ‘under’, insert ‘—(a)’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment and amendments 77 to 86 reflect the fact that enforcement action is sometimes

 

taken under legislation under which the enforcer‘s legislation is made, not under the enforcer’s

 

legislation itself. For example, a breach of safety regulations under the Consumer Protection Act

 

1987 is an offence under that Act not the regulations.
