HC Deb 19 July 1960 vol 627 c30W
89. Mr. Elliott

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, in view of the substantial increase in the amount of advertising displayed on shop premises, whether he is satisfied that the terms of the Code of Standards for Advertising on Business Premises, to which he contributed the foreword, are being observed.

Sir K. Joseph

It is bound to take some time before it is possible to judge the effect of the Code. It is not my right hon. Friend's responsibility to secure that it is observed; but he certainly deplores action which is inconsistent with it and with the efforts which are being made by responsible trade organisations to deal with clutter on business premises.
