The National Consumers Association has welcomed pronouncements made by the Minister for Commerce who has vowed to ensure that the consumer protection Bill is passed.

But while Mr Kingsley St Hill has lauded Minister Emma Hippolyte for her commitment to the cause, he has lamented the failure of successive governments for their failure to pass the Consumer Protection Bill.

Mr St Hill says the NCA is preparing its crusade to ensure that the bill is passed in short order.

The sale of controlling shares in the island’s leading supermarket has also fueled concerns about unfair competition.

Mr St Hill says the NCA also expects to address fears expressed by sectors such as the manufacturers association on the issue.
