§ 41. Mr. Haseldine
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the practice of some motor repair garages who insist on a satisfaction note being signed before a vehicle may be taken away even though the owner is dissatisfied with the repairs undertaken; and whether he will bring forward early consumer protection legislation to safeguard car or van owners.
§ Mr. Darling
The owner already has certain legal rights in relation to goods delivered for repair. I am not satisfied that further legislation is required to help car or van owners.
