HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 c53W
Mr. Oakes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will introduce legislation to require door-to-door salesmen of magazines to register with a central register to prevent fraudulent dealings with the public.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

No. The publicity given to this type of selling has forewarned many people of the possible dangers, and I do not think that legislation to control this particular practice would be justified. If my hon. Friend is aware of any cases which seem to warrant investigation, perhaps he would let me know.
