§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action has been taken by his Department since the meeting of the European Economic Community Council of Consumer Ministers on 12 December 1983 to ensure agreement at the next Council on European Commission proposals concerning doorstep selling, misleading advertising and product liability; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
Discussions on each of these proposals have continued at official level in Brussels in preparation for the next Consumer Affairs Council due to be held on March 2. I will attend that Council.
