' Value for money ' is an ever more critical slogan these days. How to get it, and how to complain if you don't, is tackled this morning by Elrlys Roberts of the Consumers' Association, and Roger Cook , who champions many a consumer cause on Checkpoint, Radio 4's Friday morning programme.
They will be answering all your consumer questions, from second-hand car sales - what can you do if you're sold a ' dud '? - to laundries and dry cleaners - have .you any claim if your clothes have been ruined accidentally? Will the new code of practice for footwear give you a better deal in shoe purchase and repairs? How will the consumer credit laws help you to know when you're getting a fair deal? Household appliance faults still give rise to the largest number of consumer complaints every year - perhaps you can add to the list with your particular disaster this morning. So ring in with questions, comments and experiences to Eirlys Roberts and Roger Cook.
In the Chair Sue MacGregor Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
