HC Deb 01 February 1982 vol 17 c17W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to make it unlawful for charitable or other bodies or organisations to issue appeals for funds which include information about their financial position which is inaccurate and misleading.

Mr. Whitelaw

No. The present law is adequate to deal with cases where there is evidence of obtaining money by deception.
