HC Deb 22 February 1983 vol 37 cc392-3W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the threat they pose to the permanent employment of shop workers, Her Majesty's Government will take steps to seek to control the spread of open air markets.

Mr. Mellor

No. Powers already exist for local authorities to exercise appropriate controls in respect of open air markets.
