HC Deb 03 November 1908 vol 195 cc940-56
MR. WILKIE (Dundee)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received a communication from the editor of the Scottish Prohibitionist, drawing his attention to the constantly recurring cases in Dundee of merchants defrauding the public by the use of false and unjust weights and measures, and to the fact that the Press does not give publicity to the convictions obtained by the authorities against such merchants; and whether steps will be taken, for the protection of the public, to ensure that the reports of such convictions would be duly published.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) The communication referred to in this Question has been sent to me by the Secretary of State. I have no control as to the action of the Press and do not see my way to interfere.
