§ 52. Mr. Hamilton
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that certain personal credit firms in Scotland are selling goods on 80-weeks' credit; how far this is contrary to the provisions of paragraph 7 (1) (a) of Statutory Instrument, 1947, No. 430, the Hire-Purchase and Credit Sale Agreements (Control) Order, 1957; and what action he proposes to take in the matter.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
The Board of Trade has completed investigations into the personal credit trading carried on in Scotland. The papers have been passed to the Scottish criminal authorities who are considering them.
