Commenting on the Ministry of Justice report about the Common European Sales Law (CESL), Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:
“The Commission has provided no convincing evidence to support its position that a new EU contract law will boost cross-border trade. This proposal is a waste of time and money, and while it is being presented as a positive step by the Commission, it could lead to consumers having less protection and to more red tape for business.
“The UK Government must now send a clear message to Brussels and call for this proposal to be scrapped.”
