§ 75. Sir WILLIAM SEAGER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that great losses have been sustained by patentees and hardship inflicted on the holders of patents by reason of the War; and will he consider the advisability of an extension of time for all patents which have been affected by a period equal to the duration of the War?
§ 39. Major ENTWISTLE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is proposed to extend the period of those patents which could not be worked by the owners and the benefit of them enjoyed owing to the War, in view of the injustice which would otherwise be caused to those who have been engaged during the War in work of national service?
