HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 c10W
61. Mr. Joel Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce legislation to classify water as goods for the purposes of the Trade Descriptions Act, 1968; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Noble

I have at present no reason to think this would be justified. The question of the supply of water is one for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment.
