HC Deb 10 May 1960 vol 623 c30W
56. Mr. Holland

asked the President of the Board of Trade what use is being made of the facility arranged by his Department for permitting Citizens' Advice bureaux to obtain details from Hire-Purchase Information, Limited, on any agreements that may exist in relation to second-hand vehicles being offered for sale.

Mr. J. Rodgers

I am informed that over the past two months Hire Purchase Information Limited have answered some six enquiries a day from the Citizen's Advice Bureaux and that over 50 per cent. of the inquiries received have been in respect of motor vehicles still the subject of current hire-purchase agreements. On this showing I consider the provision of this service well worth while.
