HC Deb 12 April 1972 vol 834 cc185-6W
Mr. Boscawen

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take proceedings against Higheat Installations Limited, of 746 Finchley Road, Golders Green, London, NW11 7TH, for breach of the Trade Descriptions Act, in the light of the information supplied to him by the hon. Member for Wells.

Mr. Emery

No, because it is for the local weights and measures authority—which is under a statutory duty to enforce the Act—to consider the information in question and to decide whether there is evidence of an offence. If it considers that the law has been broken, it has to decide what action would be appropriate.
