HC Deb 19 July 1971 vol 821 c190W
47. Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what guidelines, yardsticks, and references about price increases are given to Weights and Measures inspectors to assist them in Trade Descriptions Act prosecutions.

Mr. Ridley

: None. The Act does not deal with price increases ; it is concerned with misrepresentation of the price actually being charged, or of its reduction from a previous or recommended price.
