§ 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.
