Competition and consumer policies are key to creating free, open, and competitive markets with high consumer standards that drive growth, innovation, and productivity. A robust regulatory framework which supports healthy competition is crucial to the effective functioning of the economy and supporting both businesses and consumers.

The consultation covers proposals under 3 themes on which we’re seeking views:

  • promoting competition to drive enterprise, innovation, growth, and productivity
  • updating consumer rights to keep pace with markets
  • strengthening the enforcement of consumer law by individuals and regulators
