HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 cc239-40W
80. Mr. Barnett

asked the Minister of Technology whether he is aware that typewriter and dictating machine companies are stopping the manufacture of spares in order to make machines unusable within a few years of purchase; and if he will consider the introduction of legislation to make this practice illegal.

Mr. Fowler

I am not aware of the alleged practice.
