HC Deb 20 August 1895 vol 36 c385

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will specially direct his attention to the marking of foreign-made watches, so that the intention of the Merchandise Marks Act may be carried out, and purchasers may refer either to the dial or the dome for their information, and not obscure recesses of the watch?


I shall be happy to give my attention to the subject referred to by the hon. Member; and if he can afford me information tending to show that the Act is being evaded I shall be glad to consider it most carefully.
