§ 9. Mr. HANNON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Merchandise Marks Bill; and, if so, can he indicate, approximately, upon what date it will be introduced?
I am afraid that, in view of the pressure of Parliamentary business, it is not possible to contemplate the introduction of any such Measure at present.
§ Mr. HANNON
In view of the length of time which has elapsed since the last Departmental Committee reported, has not the right hon. Gentleman now an opportunity of introducing a Measure for the protection of British trade?
I am afraid that the mere introduction would not protect British trade. There are so many things which have to be discussed that it is very probable that we should not be able to pass a Bill this Session.
