HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c298W
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.
