84. Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the President of the Board of Trade, if he will institute proceedings in the case of Scoup Finance Limited, P.O. Box 4 R.B., London, W.1, which company has repossessed motor cars without a court order and against the will of the hirer after taking over agreement of C.C.F. Finance Limited when over one-third of the total hire-purchase price has been paid, in accordance with the Hire-Purchase Act, 1965.
§ Mr. Darling
My right hon. Friend has no powers to institute proceedings under the Hire Purchase Act, but the hirer can take civil proceedings and I am making inquiries under the Companies Act. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
