It has come to our attention that BBC News 24 have broadcast a interview with Maria Hutton.
For clarification purposes Maria Hutton is not a registered member of the Unfairpak.co.uk forum and does NOT speak on behalf of our members, contrary to the implication made on the BBC programme.
We apologise for any confusion or upset this may have caused.

This is something that I can and will comment on. Maria Hutton is not part of the Unfairpak campaign and I myself saw the interview on BBC News 24. I am NOT giving any interviews whatsoever other than pointing people in the direction of my statement.

What upset me about Maria's interview is the fact she slated Christmas saving clubs. This really gets on my nerves as we have worked extremely hard in building up trust in the Industry again and I would never have taken up the post of Independent Director of Consumer Affairs of the Christmas Pre-payment Association had I even had the slightest bit of doubt in the members.

Park, Variety and the Post Office offer a fantastic way in which to save for Christmas each year not only with the lock away factor but also the excitement factor knowing that your Christmas is all fixed in October/November.

What I would also like to point out is that Maria Hutton's full street were given all their savings back from a business man at the time and accordingly, not only did they receive money from the Farepak Response Fund, had their savings repaid by a generous business man, they will also receive a dividend as well.

I find it a little bit cheeky that Maria was critical of the liquidators, critical of the approximate dividend, critical of the industry when she has nothing to do with our campaign, does not have any knowledge of the work done behind the scene and obviously has not researched the CPA at all.

Thanks for that Suzy, I was not aware of any of that and did not see the news item either.
