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

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I have seen the legislation in operation in America and there is nothing to stop someone from taking such containers. The containers only state that they are not made for households in which there arc children. Anyone as short-sighted as I am would be unable, without spectacles, to read that label on a small bottle. Unlike medicines, household products are sold from the shelves. Medicines are...

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: indicated dissent.

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: indicated assent.

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I ask leave of the House to intervene to answer some of the questions that have been raised. If I am allowed to do so now, it may lead to more speedy progress with the Bill. I find myself in an unusual but not an unprecedented position in answering questions on a measure that is not a Government Bill. I hope that the House will forgive me if I deal only with some of the main issues and do...

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I apologise to my hon. Friend. In making that mistake, I have dated myself. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar, and my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Beaconsfield (Sir R. Bell), that it would have been much more satisfactory to have part II drafted by the Law Commission following a review by it and all the consultations with interested parties that would...

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: No.

Supply of Goods and Services (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I said that the best and, in some cases the only defence for the consumer, and it has nothing to do with the Bill, is to acquire a detailed specification and complete quotation in advance of any work being carried out. No Bill or other measure will override that precaution, which will give consumers the best protection of all.

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: It may be for the convenience of the House if I intervene at this stage in the debate. I begin by congratulating the right hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) on obtaining first place in the ballot for Private Members' Bills and on his choice of subject—a choice, as he pointed out, that was originally made by many other right hon. and hon. Members who were not so fortunate as to...

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Gentleman and I had a number of exchanges about the inclusion and exclusion of the Post Office over various legislation of this type. We shall have further interesting conversations on the subject. He knows perfectly well where my heart lies on that matter. During the Committee stage of what is now the Unfair Contract Terms Act, in which that matter came up under fairly emotive...

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: My hon. and learned Friend is right. I said earlier that clause 12 of the Bill, as does the Unfair Contract Terms Act, recognises international agreements. This is another matter. As a result of that amendment made in Committee, not only carriers by air and sea but other purveyors of services can limit their liability for loss and damage to goods and property through negligence only if they...

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will bear with me and allow me to give him a full and accurate answer if I am permitted to intervene later in the debate. Because our amendment was carried in Committee and puts the onus of the burden of proof on the reasonableness test for the purveyor of the service, it has greatly strengthened the position of consumers in relation to exclusion clauses. I am...

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The Law Commission review will refer to matters presently covered by clause 16 of the Bill, but not necessarily to those matters covered in other parts of part II of the Bill.

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I made it clear at the outset of the debate that the Bill has been brought forward at short notice. Had there been a free choice in the matter, we would have preferred to refer to the whole matter to the Law Commission. Thanks to the initiative of the right hon. Member for Sunderland, North, we have an opportunity for quick legislation that will not preclude a review by the Law Commission....

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman. The Law Commission will naturally consider problems with any types of contract—it will not be prevented from doing that—but my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State may, later, exclude those matters from the provisions of part II of the Bill. The Law Commission can consider them after the Bill has become law. I expect that it will, in due...

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: That would apply only if the decorator could show that his exclusion clauses were reasonable. If they were not reasonable, the court would find against him as happened in the film processing case that I described. That aspect is of great importance to the reasonableness test and the burden of proof.

Orders of the Day — Supply of Goods and Services Bill (22 Ion 1982)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Member argued the point when he advanced the validity of using the reasonableness test in exclusion clauses when he took the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 through its various stages. If the hon. Gentleman wishes me to do so, I shall quote later reams of his speeches in support of the exclusion clauses subject to the reasonableness test. The only difference is that he wanted the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: USSR (United Kingdom Exports) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: A number of initiatives discussed at the May 1981 meeting of the British-Soviet Joint Commission are being pursued, including co-operation in the energy and automotive sectors.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: USSR (United Kingdom Exports) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: Leaving out the movement of diamonds, which benefits British firms, the trade balance is not too adverse to us. For example, we have a considerable surplus of trade in manufactured products. We are not significantly dependent on Soviet imports, except diamonds and precious stones. Our imports from the Soviet Union largely comprise raw materials, such as oil products and timber, and any...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: USSR (United Kingdom Exports) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: We trust that Poland will be left to settle its own affairs without interference from any quarter. I cannot speculate on how the United Kingdom and other Western countries would react if the Soviet Union intervened. We very much hope that it will not do so. It is clear that Soviet intervention would have far-reaching consequences for our relations in every sphere. In line with the policy...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: USSR (United Kingdom Exports) (14 Rha 1981)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that the Government have made abundantly clear their view about the Soviet Union's appalling—I repeat appalling—human rights record, but I believe that trade that is genuinely to our mutual advantage should continue.
