§ MR. F. PLATT-HIGGINS (Salford, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Register of Patent Agent Rules, made by the Board of Trade in 1889, are general rules, under the Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks Acts, 1883 to 1888; and, if so, were they repealed on the 31st March, 1890, by the then President of the Board of Trade; and, has the Register of Patent Agent Rules, 1889, been laid before Parliament since 31st March, 1890, or in any way made effective since that date; and, if so, how?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
The Rules referred to are General Rules, and they have not been repealed. They were amended by the Rules of 1891, which were presented to Parliament.
