HC Deb 26 June 1995 vol 262 cc447-8W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many meetings Ministers in his Department have had with persons representing the interests of Amway in the last three years either formally or informally to discuss matters relating to the interests of Amway. [29848]

Mr. Jonathan Evans

We have been consulting widely over proposals to improve the effectiveness of the legislation controlling pyramid selling and similar trading schemes. As part of this process, Ministers have had two meetings, one in 1992 and one last month, with a delegation from the Direct Selling Association. On the earlier occasion, the delegation included a representative of Amway UK Ltd. Also I understand that almost all Members of Parliament, including most DTI Ministers, have been approached at least once during the last three years by constituents representing Amway.
