HL Deb 22 June 1992 vol 538 c22WA
Baroness Fisher of Rednal

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they can provide the legal definition of the term "environmentally friendly" adopted by many manufacturers and placed on consumer products.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Baroness Denton of Wakefield)

There is no statutory definition of the term "environmentally friendly". The guidance on the use of such expressions in advertising issued by the industry's self-regulatory bodies advises that use of the term should be avoided.
