Consumer watchdog response to OFT report, published today, on markets in remote communities across the UK
Marieke Dwarshuis, Senior Director at Consumer Focus Scotland said:
“We know that many people in remote and rural communities across Scotland don’t get adequate services or value for money, simply because of where they live.
“This is unacceptable and we welcome the OFT’s comprehensive report. It draws attention to a number of concerns and clearly shows that there needs to be more focus, from a range of agencies, on getting services right from the start for consumers in our remote and rural communities.
“Local people, businesses and economies make up the backbone of our national economy so getting this right is a win-win for everyone.”
