HC Deb 29 March 1934 vol 287 cc2142-3W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can now make a statement with regard to the complaints from the North of England to which his attention has been drawn regarding alleged methods of intimidation by canvassers for goods?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

I have seen the complaints to which my hon. Friend refers. They cover a rather wide field, and some appear to be matters which can be dealt with under the existing law. I should be glad if my hon. Friend would be good enough to let me know in what particular direction he thinks that action is desirable.
