HC Deb 08 February 1971 vol 811 cc12-3W
78. Mr. Bruce Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce legislation to amend the Trade Descriptions Act, 1968, to ensure that the courts may have power to award compensation to victims of breaches of the Act.

Sir J. Eden

No. Determination of damage suffered from misdescription is more appropriate to the civil courts, which are experienced in such matters.
