HC Deb 23 January 1975 vol 884 cc473-4W
Mr. Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will take steps to prevent the licensed trade from utilising misleading beer-dispensing equipment portraying barrels and hand pumps, when keg beer is being sold and not traditional beer.

Mr. Alan Williams

I should be glad to consider any further information about the practice the hon. Member may wish to give me. Consumers are, of course, protected by the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 against false or misleading trade descriptions applied to goods.
