Her Majesty’s Government considers evidence of the effectiveness of all consumer legislation periodically and will take action where appropriate.

In April 2018, the Government published a Consumer Green Paper consulting on a variety of issues including seeking views on the legal framework covering consumer to consumer transactions, which would include new and used goods. The Consumer Green Paper is available in the Libraries of the House. We will publish a Consumer White Paper in due course.
