The Prime Minister led debate in the House Of Assembly on the Consumer Protection Bill on Wednesday.
The Hon. Philip Davis told Parliamentarians, “with this bill we are making those needed amendments to the law to drive healthy competition, protect Bahamian consumers and promote customer satisfaction.”
Davis went further speaking about the benefits of the bill to consumers. ” If you encounter unfair business activities you can file a complaint from anywhere, even if you’re not in the country. Your geographic location will no longer be a barrier to receiving justice.”
“In cases where a person is unable to give testimony in person, they’ll now be able to deliver that testimony virtually instead once again expanding access to justice for those who are wronged,” Davis continued.
The bill once passed will replace the existing legislation.
