StepChange Debt Charity response to the Bank of England’s Money and Credit statistics PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 29 April 2016
In response to March’s Money and Credit figures from the Bank of England, Peter Tutton, Head of Policy at StepChange Debt Charity, said: “Consumer credit has again risen rapidly and this is an area of growing concern.

“Slow wage growth and the rise in insecure jobs have left millions of households financially vulnerable and we have already seen an increase in the number of people coming to us for debt advice in 2016. If consumer credit continues to rise quickly, it risks increasing the vulnerability of households who are already struggling to make ends meet.

“The last time consumer credit increased at this rate was in the lead-up to the recession, when credit was widely available and many households became seriously indebted. Creditors must ensure they carry out thorough affordability checks and lend responsibly to ensure that the mistakes made back then are not repeated.”
