Abstract

The author argues that there are potentially three groups of people, who would normally be regarded as "consumers" intended to have the protections afforded by the Consumer Guarantees Act, but who do not fall within the present definition of "consumer". The author provides a new definition of "consumer" which she suggests would cure this defect.

Keywords: consumer, guarantees, consumer guarantees act, unprotected, definition, interpretation, legislation, statute, protection, consumer protection
