This year our National Consumer Week is part of a campaign we are running in partnership with Citizens Advice providing signposting to advice and guidance on used car purchasing. Local authority trading standards and Citizens Advice Bureau are running events across the UK throughout November to promote the campaign.

 Used car buyers are being signposted to the Citizens Advice special website information page.

                                

The campaign was launched by Jo Swinson Minister for Employment Relations and Consumer Affairs in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).
