HC Deb 03 February 1908 vol 183 cc529-30
MR. A. L. STANLEY (Cheshire, Eddisbury)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that Dutch skim-milk cheese is being imported into and sold in this country under the name of Dutch Cheshire cheese; and whether he can take any steps to prevent the buying public being imposed on by such a description.


We have for some time past been making inquiry into this matter, but up to the present we have not obtained any definite information that any offence under the Merchandise Marks Acts has been committed. The matter will continue to receive attention, and proceedings will at once be instituted if the necessary evidence of any infringement of the law is forthcoming.
