HC Deb 04 July 1961 vol 643 c96W
52. Mr. MacArthur

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now introduce legislation to protect the public from switch selling practices which involve misrepresentation about the stocks held by the firms concerned.

Mr. Maudling

I propose to await the report of the Molony Committee, within whose terms of reference these matters lie, before reaching a decision on the need for legislation to prohibit certain kinds of commercial practices.
