The previous Administration conducted a consultation on whether a statutory debt management scheme should be introduced. We issued a summary of responses on 15 October 2010 which concluded that there was no strong consensus on the action that Government should take. The responses were published alongside our call for evidence 'Managing Borrowing and Dealing with Debt', which invited comments on the personal insolvency framework, including debt management. We have received a large number of responses to this call for evidence which are currently being analysed and will be published in due course. I have also received a number of letters on this subject.
