Citizens Advice launches own manifesto

Citizens Advice has warned that problems with debt and mortgages will remain major issues for many even after the recession has ended.

The charity has launched its own manifesto, entitled No-one Left Behind, which it hopes will be supported by the three main political parties as it attends fringe meetings at their conferences.

Among the proposals in the document is a plea for more regulation of the credit and mortgage lending sectors.

Commenting on the launch, chief executive David Harker said the body is still helping some people whose problems began in the last recession of the early 1990s.

He stated: “The Citizens Advice manifesto is urging all the political parties to ensure that people who are struggling today are not left behind when the economy recovers.”

Last week, the London Health Forum said the stress of debt was causing 250,000 people living in the capital to have mental health issues.
