HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 c16W
62. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will take action in respect of the case sent to him by the hon. Member for Blackley concerning a firm of booksellers purporting to have received a remittance which was not sent and claiming payment for goods not ordered; and whether he will investigate the activities of the said firm or company in view of the two different addresses and the absence of a telephone number and in the light of the correspondence forwarded to him.

Mr. Noble:

No. A demand for payment for unsolicited goods may be an offence under the Unsolicited Goods and Services Act, which is enforced by the police. If the hon. Member thinks he has evidence of a possible offence, I suggest that he should pass this on to the police.

Forward to
