‘Complaints by small businesses
European Union Documents
Christopher Leslie (Nottingham East, Labour)
Indeed it can, but it is the way of triggering an FSA investigation that is the case in point. The FSA can choose not to listen to the voices of dozens or hundreds of small businesses, not necessarily in regard to this product but in regard to other products in the future. It is a question of giving some power to small firms, as consumers, to trigger an investigation by the regulator. This is not just a pro-consumer amendment; it is a pro-business amendment, as I hope can be agreed on all sides.
I have spoken about the amendments tabled in my name; there are others on the list. I shall be interested to hear what the Minister has to say.
