Payday lenders are not doing everything they can to make sure they lend responsibly, the Citizens Advice Bureau warned.
Russell Hamblin-Boone from the Consumer Finance Association, which represents payday lenders said he did not believe that it was the "activities of the larger lenders" he represented.
