There is a need for a major review of the law governing bailiffs, according to John Kruse, money adviser for the Citizens Advice Bureau.
'The current law is archaic and complex,' he said.
The Lord Chancellor has been looking at the issue since 1992, but Mr Kruse said proposals for change were unlikely to emerge before the turn of the century.
In the meantime, he suggested councils produced their own codes of practice and adopted close monitoring of the bailiffs they used.
-- IRRV launched a consultation paper on a code of practice for bailiffs at the conference. It has been drawn up in consultation with the DoE, and councils have until November to submit comments.
