Isn’t it time to outlaw smallprint?

MOST of us have seen programmes like Watchdog and Doorstep Crime 999 featuring calculative practices that show how lots of people get conned because they failed to read a documents small print.

This writer is adamant there is no excuse whatsoever for ANY business concern to revert from normal standard print to almost unreadable small print commonly used to obscure key facts which loads of people should be made aware of before making any considerations for holidays, insurance claims etc, etc.

In my view the government needs to outlaw all use of small print in business documentation which is causing so much anguish for so many people past to present.

The most pertinent question interviewer’s of the after mentioned TV programmes should be asking business concerns which use small print within their documents is “What exactly is your reason for using small print?”.
