Committee of Supply 2019 debate, Day 3: Lim Biow Chuan on cooling-off period for slimming and beauty industries
Have a cooling-off period for slimming and beauty treatment packages to better protect consumers - MP Lim Biow Chuan made this suggestion in Parliament on Monday (Mar 4). He said consumers are often taken advantage of by the promise of free or cheap sessions. They are under pressure to buy treatment packages or to sign up for a credit card for purchasing the packages. He urged the Ministry of Trade and Industry to have a mandatory cooling-off period for such contracts.
