HC Deb 29 July 1997 vol 299 c223W
Mrs. Gillan

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if she will assess the need for wealth warnings on radio advertising. [11121]

Mr. Griffiths

I shall shortly issue a consultation paper on the possibility of dispensing with wealth warnings in the broadcast media, along with a number of other proposals for simplifying and clarifying the Consumer Credit Act.

I need to ensure that any changes could be made without removing necessary consumer protection or adversely affecting competition among the various media.
