Consumers are entitled to safe products, reliable services and affordable rents. Government has a fundamental role in ensuring that consumers are not victims of harmful goods, and unfair or illegal business practices. Labour will ensure that Price Control laws and regulations are vigorously implemented. We will engage local banking sector to investigate issues and costs challenging dissatisfied consumers who are facing new hurdles to getting their cheques cashed and disputes with moving funds in and out of their own accounts. It is important the general public is educated about their rights and responsibilities of consumers and sellers and we will revitalize the department of consumer affairs to ensure this is done. Labour will share alerts about dangerous and defective goods and devices immediately and handle consumer complaints effectively, while ensuring penalties are imposed where necessary. We will eliminate debtor’s jail and introduce modern legislation to ensure fairness for both the lender and borrower. Labour will speak with and for the consumer and address all issues.
