HC Deb 07 November 1962 vol 666 c65W
41. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will set up a committee to investigate the operation of hire-purchase agreements in Scotland with a view to introducing legislation.

Mr. Noble

The Molony Committee on Consumer Protection that submitted its report to the President of the Board of Trade in April of this year made recommendations for amendment of the law relating to hire purchase in Scotland, and these are being considered by my right hon. Friend and myself. I do not think that it is necessary to appoint another committee.
