HC Deb 30 October 1975 vol 898 cc602-3W
Mr. Lee

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will publish a list of the companies known to have been engaged in pyramid selling activities during the past year stating how many of these are now in liquidation; how many have ceased trading though not in liquidation; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Alan Williams

I know of no companies which have been proved to have engaged in illegal pyramid selling activities over the past year. Two successful prosecutions during this period related to offences committed at an earlier date.
