Backing for MP’s charter over ‘rip-off’ payday loans

Have your say

South Yorkshire MP John Healey is backing Labour Party colleague Paul Blomfield’s proposed charter to control ‘rip-off’ payday lenders.

Mr Healey, who represents Wentworth and Dearne, is among politicians from all parties backing the charter, created by Sheffield Central MP Mr Blomfield.

Mr Healey said: “I’ve signed the charter because payday lenders are ripping off millions of people, trapping them in spirals of debt.”
