HL Deb 10 December 1996 vol 576 c89WA
Lord Lester of Herne Hill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Fraudulent Mediums Act 1951 is obsolete and should be repealed.

Baroness Blatch

The Fraudulent Mediums Act 1951 remains in force. Although there have been few recent prosecutions, the Act provides a safeguard to deal with those who exploit the credulity of others.
