OFT welcomes first use of new consumer legislation in court


The Office of Fair Trading: OFT welcomes first use of new consumer legislation in court:

"The OFT has welcomed the first use in court of new consumer protection laws following a case against Wiltshire traders whose customers complained of aggressive behaviour and poor quality work.

Wiltshire County Council's Trading Standards Department, with case support from the OFT, became the first consumer protection organisation in the UK to obtain an enforcement order under the new Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (the Regulations).

The defendants, Jimmy Stockwell (also known as James Stockwell and James Cooper) and his son Shane Stockwell, engaged in general home handy man services and were the subject of a number of complaints of, among other things, aggressive behaviour and poor quality work."
