Make a Submission on the Loan Sharks Bill

The Government is changing the law controlling loan sharks. All of the changes are good, but they’ve missed out the one big change that’s needed to make a real difference - an interest rate cap.

The good news is we live in a democracy and, before the law is finalised, you can help fix it!

We’ve made that easy. You can make your submission right here. We’ve drafted some text to start with but feel free to add your words to it – if you personalise it, it will count as an individual submission. If you want to get into a bit more detail, BERL has produced a full report on this issue. [1] [http://www.together.org.nz/berl]

And please, if you can, make sure you tell them you want to appear in person. It’s a very powerful way to speak up for what’s right.
