HC Deb 17 April 1972 vol 835 cc6-7W
45. Mr. Raphael Tuck

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will institute proceedings under the Trade Descriptions Act against the multiple selling company whose name has been supplied to him, on the basis of information given to him by the hon. Member for Watford.

Mr. John Davies

No. Further inquiries would be necessary to establish whether there is any evidence of an offence under the Act. Such inquiries and the decision on the appropriate action to be taken are the responsibility of the local weights and measures authority.
