HC Deb 13 July 1904 vol 137 cc1487-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the sale both in this country and abroad of machine-made cloths of inferior quality as Donegal homespuns; and whether any steps are being taken to put a stop to this practtice.


Such sales would seem to constitute an offence, against the Merchandise Marks Act, 1887, and if any specific cases of the kind are brought under the notice of the Department, it will be prepared to take such action as it may be advised.
