HC Deb 29 June 1972 vol 839 c401W
43. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce legislation to amend the Trade Descriptions Act so as to stop the practice of manufacturers placing inflated recommendated prices on their goods, thus permitting retailers to evade the law and make bogus special offers.

Mr. Onslow

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply my right hon. Friend the Minister for Trade gave to the hon. Member for Govan (Mr. Rankin) on 19th June.—[Vol. 839, c12.]
