Scottish action on payday loans: update

GLC has been invited to present its Discussion Paper on proposals to help financially vulnerable Scots cope with predatory payday lending practices at a roundtable discussion in the Scottish Parliament next month.

The event is being hosted by Kezia Dugdale MSP, Shadow Youth Employment Minister on Wednesday 24 October 2012, and will bring together a wide range of national consumer, civil society and advice bodies.

GLC believes the Scottish Government can introduce a Fast Track Debt Arrangement Scheme targeted at payday loans under existing powers in the Debt Arrangement and Attachment (Scotland) Act 2002 as amended.
