HC Deb 25 July 1977 vol 936 c4W
36. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what protection he proposes to give to consumers from the activities of organisers of one-day sales.

Mr. John Fraser

The Director General of Fair Trading is still considering whether some form of control over one-day sales is needed. If he is satisfied that such sales adversely affect the economic interests of consumers it is open to him to propose an order under Part II of the Fair Trading Act.
