§ 62. Mr. MARJORIBANKS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will take steps to protect the manufacturers of British-made doors by an Order under the Merchandise Marks Act prohibiting the importation into or sale 352 of foreign doors within this country without a clear mark of their origin affixed to them?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. W. R. Smith)
An application for an Order in Council under Section 2 of the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, requiring an indication of origin on imported goods of any class or description must be made to the Board of Trade by persons substantially representing the interests of either manufacturers, producers, dealers, traders, users or consumers or of any body of wage-earners. If such an application is made in respect of imported doors it will have full consideration.
