Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I reiterate to my hon. Friend that costs in British studios are substantially lower than those in the United States. This is the type of opportunity for which we have been looking for the film industry. If exploited to the full it could lead to many more films being made in Britain.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Film Industry ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Without wishing to denigrate the artistic levels of the British film industry, which I believe to be considerable and of international repute, I must point out that those are matters for my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Arts. I deal with the more mundane side of the industry—the trade side by which it functions. On that basis there is room for considerable optimism.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Consumer Committees ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: We shall decide what changes are needed in the arrangements for improving the representation of consumer interests in the energy sector, and in other nationalised industries, following completion of the consultations on the Nationalised Industries' Consumer Council reform, which started before Christmas following the publication of our consultative document, which so far has had a favourable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Consumer Committees ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: As the hon. Gentleman is aware from my previous remarks, I am especially concerned that the consumers of nationalised industries' goods and services should have adequate protection, as they are often dissatisfied. They are dealing in an area where there is no choice because there is no competition. On the question of energy consumer councils, one option in the consultative document is to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Consumer Committees ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I should have thought that the right hon. Gentleman would know already that the Government's actions under the Competition Act 1980, especially section 11 references, had the objective of finding out what aspects of costs in relation to prices were justified, especially in the area of efficiency. The reports that we have received so far show clearly that there are areas where improvements can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Building Societies Association ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: This is a matter for the Director General of Fair Trading. I understand that some of the association's recommendations are still the subject of discussion.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Building Societies Association ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have a considerable amount of sympathy with the first half of my hon. Friend's question. I hope that the practice of nomination of insurance companies will no longer continue. Following discussions last year between the Director General of Fair Trading and the BSA, the association no longer recommends that borrowers should insure their properties through an agency of the building society....

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Building Societies Association ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Self-perpetuating, anti-democratic organisations have no place in my good books. If the hon. Gentleman has a particular practice in mind—I am sure that he is raising a serious point—he should draw the matter to the attention of the Director General. I should be grateful to see a copy of his letter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Building Societies Association ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Yes, that practice is wrong. Yes, I shall strongly support measures taken by the Director General. If my hon. Friend knows of specific examples, I hope that he will bring them to the Director General's attention.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Sale of Goods Act ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: As the hon. Member knows, I welcomed the Supply of Goods and Services Bill, which received its Second Reading on 22 January and, in addition, I announced that my right hon. and noble Friend the Lord Chancellor will be asking the Law Commission to undertake a wide-ranging study of services. The Law Commission will consider whether and how the law should be reinforced further.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Sale of Goods Act ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: A good deal of publicity has already arisen out of the Second Reading debate on the Bill, which I warmly welcomed. When the Bill is enacted I shall examine the case for publicising particularly those parts that will bring new protection under the law to consumers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Sale of Goods Act ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I do not recall recognising precisely that. I thought that my recognition was more general. The codification under the law of existing consumer rights will be helpful in pursuing such cases. The future of safety in that industry, which relates back to the gas industry, is the subject of further measures which have been announced for future Sessions by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Quality Assurance and Standards Division ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The numbers of engineering posts in the national weights and measures laboratory of the metrology, quality assurance, safety and standards division has already been increased with the aim of reaching a decision on new designs of weighing or measuring equipment within a few months of submission. Following a shortage of engineers that led to delays, recruiting to fill the extra posts has been...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Quality Assurance and Standards Division ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: In reply to a written question by the hon. Member today I have explained that the case that she referred to me and that took two years was not by any means straightforward. The hon. Lady can read why it was not a straightforward case. The record already shows a considerable improvement. There is no indictment of the Department in relation to the case which the hon. Lady brought to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Quality Assurance and Standards Division ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Member for West Bromwich, West (Miss Boothroyd) was referring to a specific case about which we have had considerable correspondence. My hon. Friend is right. Anything that improves the competitive standards of British industry will result in more British goods being sold, not only abroad but at home. That can only be good for industry, jobs and the country.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Quality Assurance and Standards Division ( 1 Chw 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I had hoped to avoid giving a specific answer. I now see no alternative. The firm that the hon. Member for West Bromwich, West referred to me was subject to delay originally because of a shortage of examiners. That delay was common to all patterns in that period. The examination began in November 1980, but it was hampered because the equipment did not work properly. I hope that the hon....

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Household Products (Child Safety) Packaging Bill (29 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I congratulate the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, North (Mr. Forrester) on his good fortune in the ballot. I commend him for choosing to show his concern—a concern I share—on a valid point of great public interest and concern, and for the moderate and extremely constructive way in which he has presented his Bill. I am, of course, only too well aware of the many tragic accidents to...

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Household Products (Child Safety) Packaging Bill (29 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: As soon as possible. Obviously, consultations have been taking place for a considerable time. I am most anxious to introduce these regulations. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman will understand that.

Orders of the Day — Dangerous Household Products (Child Safety) Packaging Bill (29 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I apologise if the hon. Gentleman has been spurned in that way. I shall look into the matter and see if I can help with his request. In my view, this form of warning in a way that cannot be missed is the essential approach in dealing with the problem. It will be clear from what I have said that I entirely sympathise with and support the hon. Gentleman's intention of reducing accidental...
