There have been various postings where people query what they can do with defective goods they have received, answers usually refer to the sale of goods act. Here is a link to the document itself should anybody need it.

The thing ios that the Sale of Goods Act is what you coauld call a culmulative Act, and Starts with the 1979 Act, as ammended by the 1994 Act and now the 2003 act, Each new "Act" does not repeal the previous acts but must be read in conjunction with them and differs considerably in content.

Also, it is not just the reading of the act that is important, it is the knowledge of HOW and WHY the courts interpret the wording of them and apply that wording to cases. So an act may say one thing, the courts decide it means something slightly different and that is how case law and precedent is made which will be followed by subsequent cases.

In other words, dont rely too strictly on the wording of the Act(s) but make sure you also understand how it is applied in cases.

Must prrof read bfor posstinng !!! ;-0

Smiffy99 I wasn't expecting anybody to use it as a basis for court proceedings, but there are clearly a lot of people ignorant of it's existence along with suppliers who take advantage of that. So I still think as a little light reading for the consumer it's worth knowing where to find. Ignorance may be bliss, but it will surely get your fingers burnt.
