HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 cc444-5W
25. Mr. David Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects to bring forward his recently announced proposals to strengthen the law governing the regulation of estate agents.

Mr. Forth

I intend that in the next few weeks a draft order and regulations under the Estate Agents Act 1979 will be sent to interested parties. My proposals for amending the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 by extending it to cover misdescription of real property have already been circulated.
