HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 c6W
38. Mr. David Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce legislation to provide that manufacturers' guarantees make clear to purchasers that their rights at common law are not prejudiced by signing a guarantee registration document.

Sir G. Howe

The Fair Trading Bill will provide powers to protect consumers if the issuing of deceptive guarantees should become a widespread practice.
