HC Deb 19 March 2001 vol 365 c4W
Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce legislation requiring retailers of mobile telephones to obtain the name and address of those purchasing such equipment and for this information to be registered with a telephone licensing authority. [152307]

Ms Hewitt

There is currently no plan to introduce legislation requiring purchasers of mobile phones to provide their name and address. However, this is an important issue and one which will be kept under review.
