As a newspaper we can be sure that our customers read their ‘‘Echo’’ because this is why they purchase it!

Should this credit period be exceeded, any offer of discount made at the time the advertisement was placed is withdrawn and an interest charged at the rate of 4 per cent above the minimum lending rate of the HSBC (Midland Bank) is liable to be levied on the account. Advertisements are accepted only under the company’s ‘‘Terms of Business.’’ Please make sure you request a full copy if you are unaware of your obligations.
