§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection who represented the United Kingdom at the EEC Symposium of Consumer Organisations in Brussels on 2nd and 3rd December 1976; and on what basis the delegates were selected.
§ Mr. John Fraser
The Symposium of Consumer Organisations in Brussels on 2nd and 3rd December 1976 was convened by the EEC Commission, who issued the invitations. I understand that some 10 consumer-oriented organisations were represented by participants who attended from the United Kingdom, and in addition officials from my Department and from the Office of Fair Trading were present as observers.
