§ Mr. Mike Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether she has received the report from the Director General of Fair Trading regarding the Trade Descriptions Act; and what action she intends to take.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
The report reviewing the operation of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 has been received from the Director General of Fair Trading and I am presently considering its contents. I am proposing to arrange for the report to be published as soon as possible.
