HC Deb 29 January 1942 vol 377 cc932-3W
Mr. G. Griffiths

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the fraud on the public regarding worthless electric batteries; and whether he will inquire into the same and stop this fraud?

Captain Waterhouse

I have no information beyond statements which have recently appeared in the Press. If my hon. Friend will let me know what kind of battery he has in mind and will let me have particulars of sales of faulty batteries which have been brought to his notice, I will look into the matter.
