HC Deb 17 December 1969 vol 793 c334W
73. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many complaints he has received from the public under the Trade Descriptions Act about gas boards which advertise that natural gas is cheaper for the consumer; and if, in view of the fact that this is not so, he will institute proceedings.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

The answer to the first part of the Question is "None". Any particular advertisement considered to be misleading should be referred to the appropriate local weights and measures authority which is under a statutory duty to enforce the Trade Descriptions Act.
