§ Mr. Butcher
The Government intend to legislate, when parliamentary time permits, on product liability and misleading price indications and to introduce a general safety requirement. We also intend to lay before Parliament regulations implementing the European Community directive on misleading advertising.
My hon. and learned Friend, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Corporate and Consumer Affairs, chaired a meeting of the Council of Ministers on 29 October at which progress was made towards Community action on a number of consumer issues.
My Department's review of the legislation on pyramid selling has been completed and I expect to issue a consultation paper on this before the end of the year.
