HC Deb 22 October 1973 vol 861 cc364-5W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many complaints and representations have been received in the last six months concerning unsatisfactory package holidays; and if he is prepared to consider strengthening the Trade Descriptions Act to protect the holiday consumer.

Sir G. Howe

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave today to my hon. Friend the Member for Billericay (Mr. McCrindle). I intend, with the help of the Director General of Fair Trading, to review the scope of the protection given to holiday consumers by the Trade Descriptions Act 1968.
