HC Deb 25 July 1997 vol 298 c788W
Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will impose standards on the advertising of seat belts installation services. [10234]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Department has produced advice notes, setting out what we consider to be best technical practice, for those involved in the installation of seat belts. The issue of trading standards is the responsibility of the Department of Trade and Industry which has confirmed that legislation already exists to prevent traders from making false claims about their goods and services. Enforcement of these regulations is a matter for local trading standards officers.
