“We are delighted to be bringing our Consumer Parliament to the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area for the first time.



“Our research shows that less than half (48%) of consumers in the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area are aware of their consumer rights, and under one-third (30%) of consumers in the area always have ‘rainy day’ savings.



“We welcome everyone to come along to our free event to have their say about issues that affect them, learn about their consumer rights, get tips for managing their household budget, and pick up some free resources to help them save money,” he added.

The Parliament will take place in Newry Town Hall on Tuesday 25 February from 10am to 12.00pm.

The event is free and refreshments will be provided. To register call 0800 121 6022 or visit
