HC Deb 06 June 1985 vol 80 c189W
Mr. Gorst

asked the Attorney-General whether any infringements of the Marine Etc. Broadcasting Offences Act by the United Kingdom-based companies whose products and services have been advertised or promoted on Laser 558, have been brought to his attention; and what prosecutions he proposes to initiate.

The Attorney-General

Certain possible infringements of the nature specified have been drawn to the attention of the Director of Public Prosecutions and either have been or are being investigated by the police at his request. In a number of cases the investigation has disclosed no offence under the Act by any United Kingdom-based company. However the director is awaiting a report in relation to the current investigations.
