Elizabeth Crampton from St Albans Citizens Advice Bureau joined us this evening on the show, the subjects covered included;
The OFT has opened an investigation under the Enterprise Act 2002 into a number of companies that operate gym and fitness club chains or who provide management services to gyms. It is considering whether these companies are using or recommending unfair contract terms in breach of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 and/or are engaging in any unfair business practices under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
The investigation is progressing but the OFT will not announce a final view on whether the law may have been infringed until it has completed its investigation. It should not be assumed that the parties involved have breached any consumer protection legislation.
