No More Loan Sharks on our High Streets


sharks.jpg

We the undersigned believe that the clustering of pay day loan companies on many of our high streets is damaging for the local community. Organisations like the Money Shop and Speedy Cash charge customers interest rates of up to 3000% APR if payments are delayed and leave low paid families trapped in cycles of debt repayments. At a time when tax and benefit changes are meaning more low paid families having to resort to ‘legal loan sharks’ to make ends meet, the Government should enforce a cap on the interest rates these companies are able to charge. The Government must also implement Labour’s plans to give local councils and communities real powers to prevent more pay day loan companies opening up on local high streets.

I would also like to see the end of these companies being allowed to advertise on television. The interest rates they charge are criminal..
