§ Mr. Nicholas Winterton
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department, pursuant to the answer of 12 April,Official Report, column 100, what response his Department made when approached in connection with the report to the European Commission on information and protection of transactions concerning immovable property purchased by consumers.
Mr. John M. Taylor
I assume that the question refers to an answer given by the President of the Board of Trade on 12 April. The Lord Chancellor's Department was approached in the context of a study of the existing position in the United Kingdom. The Department offered to assist, but the offer was not followed up by those preparing the report.
