§ Mr. Lomas
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if he will introduce legislation under the Sale of Goods Act to protect persons purchasing motor cars from either dealers or private individuals who sell cars which are not roadworthy.
§ Mr. John Fraser
The Sale of Goods Act confers on me no power to legislate by order. Such legislation appears, in any case, to be unnecessary since the Road Traffic Act 1972 already makes it unlawful to sell an unroadworthy vehicle.
