HC Deb 11 May 1988 vol 133 c141W
24. Mr. Morley

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what representations he has received seeking new legislation to protect consumers.

Mr. Butcher

Suggestions for new legislation to protect consumers are received from a wide range of organisations and individuals. Careful consideration is given to all proposals, bearing in mind the Government's wish to avoid placing undue burdens on business. Our aim is rather to protect consumers by ensuring that they have good and sufficient information on which to make a reasoned choice.
