§ 87. Mr. Terry Davis
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action he has taken as a result of the estimate made by the Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures for Kent, a copy of which has been sent to him, that as many as 50 per cent. of used cars sold in Great Britain have false mileages on the speedometers.
§ Mr. Ridley
The falsification of odometer readings is generally held to contravene the Trade Descriptions Act, and local weights and measures authorities have shown themselves active in their duty of enforcement.
