StepChange Debt Charity response to the Bank of England’s Money and Credit statistics PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 01 November 2016
In response to the Bank of England’s Money and Credit statistics, Peter Tutton, Head of Policy at StepChange Debt Charity, said:  “These figures show that credit card borrowing is rising at its fastest rate since before the financial crisis. Credit cards are already the most common type of debt we see and we are concerned that increased lending could see even more people fall into problem debt.

“The Financial Conduct Authority’s credit card market study committed to making credit cards work better for consumers and identified clear concerns about persistent debt, but we are still waiting on details of the action that will be taken.

“Action is needed not only to prevent more people from falling into problem debt, but to provide better help for those already struggling.”
