HC Deb 25 February 1904 vol 130 cc968-9
COLONEL DENNY (Kilmarnock Burghs)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will state how many petitions have been presented under Clause 3, Sub-sections 1 and 5, of the Patents Act, 1902: and what has been the result.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) Three petitions have been presented to the Board of Trade under the section in question. One petition has been withdrawn by the petitioner. The other two are still pending. I am considering whether any steps should be taken to call public attention to the provisions of the Act.
