HC Deb 29 April 1965 vol 711 cc78-9W
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.
