HC Deb 14 December 1970 vol 808 cc226-7W
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 misdescriptions should be referred to them for appropriate action.
