Under new laws to be introduced next year, aggressive bailiffs could face being barred from the industry.
Justice Minister Helen Grant said:
Too many people in debt have had the additional stress of dealing with aggressive bailiffs who often charge extortionate fees.
These new laws will clean up the industry and ensure bailiffs play by the rules or face being prevented from practising. They will also make sure businesses and public bodies can collect their debts fairly.
