The government has issued a 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
The informal consultation closes on 16 January 2018; however, views should be submitted as early as possible.
