§ Mr. Palmer
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what has been the response to the letter from her Department, published in the Motor Trader of 21st August 1974, inviting the submission of evidence to back up the claim that stamp trading at petrol service stations is against the general interest.
Mr. Alan Williams
Neither this nor subsequent correspondence with the editor of the magazine has yet produced any factual evidence that stamp trading operates to the detriment of the consumer. If any exists I shall be glad to consider it.
