§ 62. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take action under the Trade Descriptions Act against those misrepresenting by newspaper advertisements the efficacy of hearing aids to solve the problems of the hard of hearing.
§ Mr. Ridley
No. Local weights and measures authorities are under a statutory duty to enforce this Act and alleged 227W misdescriptions should be referred to them for appropriate action.
