§ 48. Sir HUGH LUCAS-TOOTH
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any application has been made to bring jam manufactured from foreign fruit, whether abroad or in this country, under the Regulations of the Merchandise Marks Act?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Burton Chadwick)
No such application has been received. In any case, I would remind my hon. Friend that no Order-in-Council made under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, could apply to jam made in this country from foreign fruit, in view of the provision in Section 10 (4) (c), by virtue of which a sale for the purpose of the Act does not include the sale of any foodstuffs which have undergone a process of cooking, curing or preserving in the United Kingdom.
§ salted herrings, not canned, exported from the United Kingdom, and from Scotland, respectively, to the Continent of Europe in each of the years specified, so far as the information is available.
