Raise the Issues Most Important to You at NI’s First Consumer Parliament

in Consumer Skills, Energy, Money Affairs, Post, Transport

Northern Ireland consumers will have the opportunity to raise the issues most important to them, learn about their consumer rights and how to save money at the Consumer Council’s inaugural Consumer Parliament on Friday 24 March 2017.

The event will take place in Belfast’s Spires Conference Centre, (opposite the Grand Opera House), from 9.30am – 2.30pm. The Parliament will allow attendees to have their say and vote on matters relating to energy, banking, public transport, water services, postal services as well as general consumer issues.


The Consumer Council’s Chief Executive John French said: “We are very much looking forward to our first Consumer Parliament event. Participants will have their say on the most important consumer issues in Northern Ireland. In addition, the Parliament provides an opportunity to talk face to face with the Consumer Council and organisations such as the Utility Regulator, NI Water, Translink, Ofcom and the Financial Ombudsman Service, as well as a range of other advice bodies who can answer questions and provide useful resources for consumers to take home.


“Hopefully through the discussion attendees will leave the Consumer Parliament more informed about their rights, empowered to exercise them and complain effectively in the event of something going wrong,” said John.


Anyone who would like to attend the Consumer Parliament event can book a place by emailing keelin.kelly@consumercouncil.org.uk or phone 028 9025 1667. The event is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
