This volume studies the law relating to the Trade Descriptions Acts of 1968 and 1972. It examines the history of trade description legislation: the law relating to goods, pricing, statements about services and "bargain offers", and looks at defences under the Acts, their enforcement and the work of Trading Standards Officers. This account of this difficult area of the law should be of interest not only to students of consumer law, scholars in this field and Trading Standards Officers but also to practising lawyers.
