update 18 Oct 2013:

In October 2013 was informed that "there have been staff changes in the Consumer and Competition directorate at BIS and Paul Bland has recently taken over responsibility for pedlars and street trading policy [2007 Dennison then 2009 Branton & Onikosi et al]... he seeks detailed account of difficulties experienced by pedlars and is keen to engage with the pedlar community before finalising policy details". These articles have been extracted from archives with some details redacted and are published to inform BIS that the consultation to date has proposed no viable resolution to the many real concerns of pedlars.
