§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if, having regard to the extensive use in Turkish and other markets of the Ottoman Empire of the 1136 trade marks of Sheffield by German and other foreign manufacturers of cutlery and steel, the Secretary of State will move Her Majesty's Ambassador to render such help as may be possible to British firms vindicating the rights of themselves and their countrymen?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. GEORGE CURZON,): Lancashire, South-port
A notice was inserted in the London Gazette on the 14th of February last pointing out the steps which should be taken in such cases by the parties interested. Her Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople will, however, continue to afford all the help which can properly be given to any British subjects who may complain that their rights in regard to Trade Marks are being infringed in the Ottoman Dominions.
