HC Deb 12 June 1990 vol 174 c113W
Mr. Illsley

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he intends to bring forward proposals to further control the clocking of vehicle mileometers.

Mr. Forth

I have no plans to do so. This practice is a criminal offence under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 and local trading standards officers have the appropriate powers to investigate and to prosecute offenders.
