HC Deb 07 February 1972 vol 830 cc236-7W
42. Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry in what way the Trade Descriptions Act is administered in respect of the sale of bread to the consumer.

Mr. Ridley

The provisions of the Trade Descriptions Act against false trade descriptions extend to all goods. But certain terms used to describe bread cannot be false trade descriptions if employed in accordance with regulations under the Food and Drugs Acts.
