HC Deb 08 March 1887 vol 311 c1581
MR. HOULDSWORTH (Manchester, N.W.)

asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, If he will have any objection to introduce into the Bill to consolidate the Merchandise Marks Act (1862) Amendment Bill with the Act of 1862 words more fully and specifically to describe the false marking of lengths, widths, and weights of piece goods and yarns than are to be found in the Act of 1862?

THE SECRETARY (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)

I believe that Clause 7 of this Bill and the Act of 1862, read together, as they will be in the Consolidating Bill, do sufficiently define "the false marking of length, width, and weights of piece goods and yarns;" but if that is shown not to be the case, I shall be happy to see whether the hon. Member's wish can be met in Committee, and, of course, to do so if possible.
