HC Deb 02 February 1993 vol 218 cc83-4W
Mr. Chris Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to be able to bring forward his proposals to amend the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 in relation to environmental claims.

Mr. Leigh

I have been asked to reply.

Many environmental claims are already within the scope of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968. We intend to amend the Act to put it beyond doubt that all such claims are covered as soon as parliamentary time permits.
