§ 29. Mr. J. H. Osborn
asked the President of the Board of Trade when he intends to introduce legislation for consumer protection on the lines of the Protection of Consumers (Trade Descriptions) Bill introduced in the last Parliament.
§ Mr. Osborn
The right hon. Gentleman has given this reply on more than one occasion since then. The Bill was published at the beginning of the year. Is it not now time that he gave this matter priority?
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this was one of the Bills in the Queen's Speech in November, 1965, which the Prime Minister, in the Debate on the Address, said had a higher priority than the Steel Bill? Will he recognise that some of us think that he could create a situation in which it could still have a higher priority?
