HC Deb 02 February 1893 vol 8 c244
MR. STUART-WORTLEY (Sheffield, Hallam)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether any new law for repressing the false marking of merchandise, or applying of false trade descriptions to goods, has come into existence in the. German Empire, or in the Kingdom of Prussia, since last Session; and, if not, whether any proposal for the enactment of such a law is now under discussion in the German Legislature; and whether he will lay upon the Table a Copy of such proposal or new law?


Yes, Sir; such a Bill is before the German Legislature, and a copy of Sir Edward Malet's despatch, and of a translation of the Bill, will be laid on the Table by my hon. Friend the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs.
