Law students at the University of Bolton have been questioning Sajjad at a special lecture organised by David Rigg who is Senior Lecturer on the University’s Law programme and Course Supervisor on European Law.
Sajjad has welcomed positive EU measures that will make it much easier and quicker for consumers to settle disputes over goods and services without the need to resort to legal action. He has said the plans will also help companies solve disputes cheaply and more efficiently and allow them to better manage their customer relations and corporate image.
The European Parliament's drive for better and simpler regulation was at the centre of discussions during a two-day delegation of MEPs to Denmark, organised to help pave the way for the Danish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Sajjad has this week welcomed plans by the European Commission to help hundreds of small businesses in the region by potentially excluding them from future EU laws. However, he believes the plans do not go far enough.
