§ Mr. MacCormick
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what purpose is being served by the current policy of allowing the Office of Fair Trading to distribute in Scotland literature applicable only to England; and whether she will issue a directive for the discontinuation of this practice.
Mr. Alan Williams
This is a matter for the Director General of Fair Trading58W and I am asking him to write to the hon. Member. I understand that Departments and others concerned in Scotland are consulted in the preparation of literature issued by his Office.
