HC Deb 11 December 1984 vol 69 c438W
Rev. Martin Smyth

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether the French cosmetic product, the name of which has been supplied to him, has been licensed for sale in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Fletcher

Cosmetics do not have to be licensed for sale in the United Kingdom, but they have to comply with the Cosmetic Products Regulations 1984. I have no knowledge of the product in question, but if the hon. Member would supply me with a sample, together with the reason why he is concerned about it, I will have it analysed.
