To ask the Scottish Government when it will establish a new consumer body; what powers the body will have; what budget it will have, and how it will be funded.

Answered by: Keith Brown 12 July 2016

As stated in the Scottish Government's response to the report of the Working Group on Consumer and Competition Policy for Scotland (http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0049/00498180.pdf), we are working with stakeholders to consider the possible form and functions of a dedicated consumer protection body for Scotland.
