Consumer rights site

January 21, 2000

Students living away from home for the first time have been singled out as the targets of a consumer rights website, launched this week by the Office for Fair Trading.

As well as providing online advice on debt and consumer rights, the website will show

students how to use the small claims court, how to draw up a debt plan and how to get a good deal on a used car.

Beer mats and posters carrying details of the website will soon appear at student unions all over the country.
