Watch Out Rogue Traders, trading Standards May Have More Powers

The consultation follows on from the Red Tape Challenge, and seeks to consolidate and simplify consumer law relating to investigatory powers. Other proposals include making officers’ routine visits pre-arranged unless there are compelling reasons for them to be unannounced.
