HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 c1449
Captain BOWYER

(by Private Notice) asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that a large German firm of glass manufacturers are communicating with firms in this country to the effect that they are at present marking their chimneys for export to England with the mark "Fireproof" etched on the chimneys; whether he realises the danger involved in this to all British glass works, and whether he will not take legislative steps before Christmas to cause all foreign goods to be marked clearly with the country of origin?


The possibility of introducing a short Bill to deal with this matter before Christmas has received anxious consideration and I regret that the time available makes it impracticable to carry such a measure this Session.
