HC Deb 28 January 1982 vol 16 c405W
Mr Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will seek to amend section 27 of the Hire Purchase Act 1964 in order to extend its protection to a private purchaser who innocently buys a motor vehicle subject to a leasing agreement and is then required to return it to a finance company.

Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

I sympathise very much and share my hon. Friend's concern about this apparantly anomalous situation. I am giving urgent consideration to the matter.
