asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether she is satisfied with the progress to date in eliminating the spurious invoicing of entries for inclusion in trade and telegraphic directories.

Measures to strengthen them are included in the Unsolicited Goods and Services (Amendment) Bill, which has the support of the Government.
