Donna Hopton, Director of cherry, commented: "This is such an important issue for consumers as well as truly independent advisers yet the Financial Trade Bodies have let everyone down badly by not fighting strongly enough against the Regulators and the Government. Through the video, consumers will now be alerted to the risks and will be able to spead the word and carry out lobbying themselves.
"We urge everyone involved, especially Mark Hoban MP, The Financial Secretary to the Treasury to show integrity and to listen and act on advice and comments from the financial community - but also on advice from Harriett Baldwin, Esther McVey and the many others who spoke out at yesterday's Westminster Debate."
PKS, one of Hampshire's top mortgage brokers, supports cherryfind, and believes consumers need to have more choice when making huge financial decisions. Paul Skinner comments: "The industry has struggled over the last couple of years, with many mortgage brokers leaving the industry due to the recession and the decline in the property market. The way the industry is currently regulated, it would seem that the Government is in favour of consumers using banks and building societies to obtain their mortgages, however, this route is dangerous as the advice given by these organisations is NOT independent.
"If a consumer wants to receive "truly" independent advice, they should always use the services of an independent broker, such as PKS."

PKS is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in respect of mortgage and general insurance business only.
