§ 12. Miss Burton
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to make a statement on the proposal made by the Consumer Advisory Council of the British Standards Institution that an independent national body representing every aspect of consumer interest should be established.
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Sir David Eccles)
I regret that I am not yet ready to make a statement.
§ Miss Burton
I appreciate the right hon. Gentleman's courtesy in this matter, but if he is considering the appointment of a committee to look into this suggestion, will he feel able to draw the terms of reference in such a way that consideration can be given to the usefulness of broadcasting any such reports by a consumer body, both on television and sound radio?
