HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 c269W
91. Mr. Dodds

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how far recent investigations indicate that the present law is adequate to deal with undesirable practices at mock auctions.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The prevention in this type of business of practices which may be regarded as undesirable is not easily achieved by legal prohibitions, but such inquiries as I have made do not suggest that there is any urgent need for amendment of the existing law.
