§ 43. Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what steps are taken to ensure that products stated to be "All British Made Products" are in fact made in the United Kingdom; and what proposals he has to strengthen the law with regard to such advertisements.
§ Mrs. Sally Oppenheim
False or misleading indications of national origin, both on goods and in advertisements, are prohibited under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968. I see no need at present to amend these requirements, the enforcement of which is a matter for local authority trading standards departments.
