Quotes

Which? lawn care expert Adelaide Gray says: "The Ryobi seems a good way to get around short battery-life when you're cutting through thicker grass. But you don't necessarily need a hybrid machine to get enough power to trim around your garden. Just follow our Which? advice on choosing a grass trimmer "
Which? chief executive, Richard Lloyd said: "It is inexcusable that bank staff can’t give customers basic information about the compensation scheme if their bank goes bust."
Which? child car seat expert Lisa Galliers says "It's better to use a backless booster seat than no child car seat at all, but if you currently use one we'd advise you to change it for a high-backed booster seat as soon as possible, especially if you're travelling long distances over Easter."
"The government, local authorities and the FSA need to make tackling food fraud a priority and take tougher action to crack down on the offenders. This is vital to restoring trust in the industry, which is not only good for consumers but good for businesses too."
