Consultation on Administration Orders: Weakening Protection?

The Ministry of Justice is currently consulting on proposals to limit the types of debts that can be included in future Administration Orders as part of its wider review of assistance to people in debt problems, which will include the introduction of Enforcement Restriction Orders.

The consultation paper includes proposals to weaken the assistance available to debtors by excluding rent arrears, council tax, and magistrates fines arrears from future Administration Orders.

Debt on our Doorstep will be responding, and welcomes input from Money Advice Agencies and other community groups. The full consultation paper is available from:

The deadline for responses is 16th April and we would welcome comments from supporting agencies to inform our response by 31st March.
