Some agencies charge exorbitant amounts without any likelihood of securing people castings or work. “Unfortunately there are some rogue agencies that prey on models and entertainers who have stars in their eyes,” comments business minister Pat McFadden. “Last year we introduced a cooling-off period for up-front fees but we are still receiving some reports that people are being exploited. So now we are going even further by banning them outright. “This will tackle the unscrupulous agents that represent the less appealing face of the modelling and entertainment industry.’ Draft regulations will be laid in parliament in November and will come into force during 2010. Entrepreneurs that break the law could face prosecution and courts can impose unlimited fines for the most serious offences. Rogue agencies could also be banned from operating for up to ten years.
