HC Deb 19 May 1908 vol 189 cc80-1
MR. JOYCE (Limerick)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether his attention has been called to an advertisement of milk-blended butter packed in casks, firkins, baskets, and two pound rolls, without printed notice, also in blocks one pound square long, with printed notice as required and approved, in the name of Coopman and Young, 48, St. John Street, Smithfield, London; and whether, in view of Section 9 of the Butter Bill of 1907, he will say whether this firm have ever been proceeded against, and, if so, with what result.


Our attention has been called to the advertisement to which my hon. friend refers and the matter is under consideration. We are not aware of any proceedings having been taken under Section 9 of the Butter and Margarine Act, 1907 against the firm mentioned.
