§ Mr. Francis Noel-Baker
asked the President of the Board of Trade what requests he has made to the Consumer Council regarding action on advertising; and what reply he has made to the Council's proposals for statutory control of advertising.
§ Mr. Darling
My proposals for new merchandise marks legislation, which would materially strengthen the law against deceptive advertising, take account of the views which the Council has put to me. I have told it that I am not convinced that further statutory control of advertising is necessary.
