'Mrs J' has debts of £9,000. She has unopened bills behind the clock in her flat. She's in tears. Tomorrow 'John's' gas, which he needs for cooking and heating, will be disconnected. He chain smokes in the waiting-room.
They have both come to their local Citizens Advice Bureau expecting immediate free advice. Six million enquiries were handled by the 910 bureaux in England and Wales last year. But the CAB Service, staffed almost entirely by volunteers, is itself desperately short of money. In many areas bureaux are operating on a hand-to-mouth existence - some don't know if they'll survive beyond this year. Yet the demand for their services increases daily.
John Howard assesses the value of Britain's only national, free advice service.

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.
