HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 cc507-8
10. Miss Burton

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to give further information concerning the establishment of a consumer advice centre.

Mr. H. Wilson

I am afraid I cannot add at present to the statement made by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary during the debate on this subject on 28th July last.

Miss Burton

While noting that reply and realising that a considerable amount of work is involved, may I ask whether my right hon. Friend does not think that eight months is rather a long time for his Department to be working on the details of this proposal? Will he hasten matters a little?

Mr. Wilson

We have pushed on with all possible expedition, but we have had other things of perhaps greater importance to look at in connection with consumer protection.
