Detail of outcome
This response summarises the submissions received to the call for evidence, and confirms that the next stage of the implementation of the scheme will be to consult on a single policy proposal later this summer.
The government is issuing this call for evidence to gain further insight from the debt advice sector and creditors about how best to design, implement, administer and monitor a six-week breathing space scheme and statutory debt management plan.
The call for evidence covers the following, broad, topics:
- how to access and then enter a six-week breathing space
- how a breathing space could work for creditors and debtors
- how to best design a statutory debt management plan
Please note that the informal consultation closes on 16 January 2018; however, we would be grateful if you could send in your views as early as possible.
