§ 29. Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether he will make a statement on the proposed EEC directive for contracts negotiated away from the place of business.
§ Mr. John Fraser
I fully support the draft directive's main provision, that consumers who buy expensive goods and services at the door should be protected against sharp practice. But our attitude to the detail of the draft will need to take account of consultations my Department is now conducting with representative bodies in the United Kingdom.
