star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that it is essential that domestic Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) consumers get a fair deal and therefore the powers held by an independent Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) provide the best long-term guarantee of competitive prices and consumer protection.</p><p>The supply of bulk domestic LPG remains subject to regulation under the Domestic Bulk LPG Investigation Order 2006 and the Domestic Bulk LPG Investigation (Metered Estates) Order 2009 and the CMA continues to monitor compliance by the suppliers.</p><p>We therefore have no plans to create another regulatory body to regulate the LPG sector.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where a business collapses with no assets there are limited opportunities for consumers to obtain refunds, but the Government has issued guidance to help Insolvency Practitioners to highlight the best options to consumers.</p><p> </p><p>Where a consumer has paid by credit card and not received the goods or the services they have paid for there are extra protections where those goods cost between £100 and £30,000. In these cases, the consumer can claim back the total value of their prepayment by contacting their credit card issuing company. Consumers who purchased goods by debit card may also be able to claim through a chargeback scheme as long as they do this within a certain time period (normally 120 days). Further information on chargeback can be found at: <a href="http://www.theukcardsassociation.org.uk/individual/chargeback-for-credit-and-debit-card-purchases.asp" target="_blank">http://www.theukcardsassociation.org.uk/individual/chargeback-for-credit-and-debit-card-purchases.asp</a>.</p><p> </p><p>In August 2018, the Government announced its intention to extend existing powers to investigate, disqualify and prosecute directors of insolvent companies to also cover former directors of dissolved companies. This includes instances of directors repeatedly dissolving companies and leaving behind debts and other liabilities – often to the detriment of small businesses, consumers and employees.</p>
