HC Deb 24 July 1970 vol 804 cc262-3W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will amend the Consumer Protection Act, 1961, to give local authorities a duty of enforcement and to supply reports to the Home Office.

Mr. Sharples

My right hon. Friend has no evidence that the existing arrangements for enforcement are unsatisfactory. But he will keep the hon. Member's suggestion in mind.
