The Fair Trading Legislation, 1973
The preceding chapter was written towards the end of 1971 when our full study of the effects of the existing legislation had been completed. The recommendations in that chapter were, then, based upon what we had learned in our study. However eighteen months have elapsed during which publication of our study was delayed, and in the interim the Fair Trading Bill was published. 1 It will perhaps be helpful, then, if we summarise the legislation and compare it with our recommendations above.
