HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c49W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans she has to investigate advertisements for devices designed to circumvent(a) odometers and (b) speed cameras. [51288]

Mr. Nigel Griffiths

The investigation of complaints about advertisements is a function of the Advertising Standards Authority, which administers the British Codes of Advertising and Sales Promotion. I have brought examples of advertisements relating to the alteration of odometers to the attention of the Authority, which has undertaken to investigate them. I have also asked the Advertising Standards Authority to consider whether action could be taken against anyone advertising devices designed to circumvent speed cameras.
