HC Deb 22 May 1972 vol 837 c252W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will seek to amend the Trade Descriptions Act, 1968, to make it illegal to charge more than the advertised price for a package holiday; if he will seek to amend the law to prevent additional charges being made for extras which appeared to be included in the total price; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Onslow

When the time comes to review the Trade Descriptions Act, we can certainly consider whether express provision regarding these and similar matters should be added, but I have no immediate proposal for legislation on them.
