HC Deb 09 March 1995 vol 256 cc286-7W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what inquiries are going on into the activities of companies involved in network marketing.

Mr. Ian Taylor

[holding answer 7 March 1995]: Since June 1994, the Department has successfully applied to the High Court to wind up 12 companies engaged in the promotion of money-making schemes with a pyramid recruitment structure similar to that used in network marketing. However, as a matter of policy, I cannot disclose whether any current inquiries are taking place.
