To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has to regulate the after-sales agreements offered by manufacturers of household goods.

Mr. McLoughlin

[holding answer 18 January 1994]: The Department of Trade and Industry published a consultation paper on consumer guarantees in February 1992. Further consideration of this issue has been delayed pending the publication, which took place last month, of the EC Commission's discussion paper on the same subject.
