HC Deb 28 March 1969 vol 780 c380W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to obtain from local authorities figures showing the number of representations they receive, under the terms of the Trade Descriptions Act, about the content of public advertisements of cures for baldness.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

No. If a local weights and measures authority intends to prosecute in such a case, it will inform the Board. I do not think that the further information mentioned by the hon. Member would—if available—be of sufficient value to justify its collection.
