The government appears to have rowed back from its commitment to consider banning claims management companies (CMCs) from making cold calls.

Work and pensions minister Lady Buscombe (Peta Buscombe) told the House of Lords this week that the government is minded to eschew a ban and instead strengthen regulation of CMCs by transferring responsibility to the Financial Conduct Authority. This would come through the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill announced in last month’s Queen’s speech.
