§ 38. Mr. Lipton
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will introduce legislation to ensure stricter control of hire-purchase companies.
§ Mr. Lipton
Has the hon. Gentleman heard of the proposed nation-wide credit-rating directory organised by a number of the leading hire-purchase organisations? Would not he agree that, with all this snooping and private exchange of information and other dubious practices of hire-purchase salesmanship, the time has come to clip the wings of these highly undesirable organisations?
