HC Deb 10 December 1964 vol 703 c211W
41. Mr. William Clark

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to prevent firms and organisations sending merchandise through the post to individuals who have not ordered such merchandise.

Mr. Jay

This is certainly an irritating and undesirable practice. But since I am advised that the recipient is under no obligation, either to pay for or to return the goods, but simply to keep them until the sender collects them, no Government intervention seems necessary.
