No, where'd you get that info from....as from as I'm aware its still very much law. At no point in class did our tutor say that The Trade Descriptions Act no longer existed.
You are correct Marshmello, it still exists in small bits but the bulk of it has been superceded by CPRs, I didn't want to go into too much detail.
The wider point is that TDA and CPR are criminal legislation, the problems being highlighted here are civil law issues and are covered by the Regulations I mentioned. No one is going to prosecute T&M for selling tatty plants but we have rights as individuals under civil law.
This doesn't apply to Scotland for you Beechgrovers up there, can't help you with Scottish law I'm afraid.
