HC Deb 23 July 1969 vol 787 c381W
Mr. Murray

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to ensure that travel agents or hotel-keepers do not misrepresent the holiday acommodation they are offering.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

It is already an offence under the Trade Descriptions Act for such people knowingly or recklessly to make a statement in this country which is false to a material degree as regards the provision or nature of services, accommodation or facilities, the location or amenities of accommodation, and certain other matters. I hope that holidaymakers who have reason to think that such false statements have been made, whether in brochures or otherwise, will report the facts to the appropriate local weights and measures authority, who are responsible for enforcing the Act.
