HC Deb 26 July 1971 vol 822 c16W
Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied with the workings of the Trade Descriptions Act in respect of advertising by estate agents; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley

I am satisfied that the Act deals adequately with advertising by estate agents of the services they offer, but it does not apply to descriptions of houses for sale.
