§ MR. MUNDELLA
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies if it is true that the Government of the Bahamas has refused its consent to the adoption of the Merchandise Marks Act; and whether he will lay the correspondence upon the Table?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Baron H. de WORMS,) Liverpool, East Toxteth
The Government of the Bahamas has twice introduced into the House of Assembly, Bills corresponding to the Merchandise Marks Act, but has failed to carry them. It seems hardly worth while to lay the correspondence on the Table; but the right hon. Gentleman would perhaps call at the Colonial Office and see it, and then consider if the presentation is really desirable.
