HC Deb 11 May 1988 vol 133 c151W
63. Mr. John Marshall

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress he is making in his campaign to tackle misleading credit advertising.

Mr. Maude

On 23 March my Department circulated revised draft regulations which simplify and clarify the existing provisions of the Consumer Credit (Advertisements) Regulations and contain important additional safeguards for borrowers, particularly in the area of secured lending. Comments on the draft regulations have been requested by 20 May 1988.
