11.00 The Centre for Social Justice

Radisson Blu Hotel : Room 15/16

How severe is the UK’s serious personal debt problem, and what can we do about it?

Refreshments at the event.


We set out the challenges faced by families facing crippling debt where money is already hard to come by. Serious personal debt is too often overlooked in the poverty debate. We will discuss what we can do to help low income families climb out of debt and protect them from predatory loan sharks. This event will set out a plan for a new Conservative government to ensure we tackle serious personal debt and pull the plug on lending practices plunging low income families even further into poverty.


12.30 StepChange Debt Charity and Money Advice Trust

Bridgewater Hall : Green room

Stop The Knock: How can we reduce and reform the use of bailiffs?

Bailiffs are breaking the rules and treating people in debt badly. What's the Government going to do about it?


More than 2 million debts are passed to bailiffs by local authorities every year. Bailiffs can be as harmful as payday lenders - and more expensive, but are less regulated than the debt advisors who have to deal with the fallout. The Government is reviewing the law on bailiffs, and looking at changes to council debt collection practices to protect the most vulnerable. We’ll be asking, what should bailiff reform look like, and how can we reduce the use of bailiffs in the first place?
