HC Deb 15 July 1958 vol 591 cc88-9W
Mrs. Mann

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that there is nothing to prevent anyone issuing a certificate based on trivial standards for a fee; and what steps he is taking to protect the consumer from such practices.

Sir D. Eccles

Yes, but I do not think there is, in practice, any serious abuse. There is already statutory protection against the application of false or misleading trade descriptions to goods and I see no need to add to this.
