HC Deb 30 April 1931 vol 251 c1813
74. Viscount ELMLEY

asked the Minister of Agriculture when the scheme for establishing a National Mark for jam made of English fruits will come into effect?


I am advised that an amendment of the Agricultural Produce (Grading and Marking) Act, 1928, will be necessary before a National Mark scheme for jam can be introduced. The proposals to be laid before Parliament in this connection are now under consideration.

Viscount ELMLEY

Will the right hon. Gentleman remember how very important it is that this scheme should be brought into operation as soon as possible?


Yes, and I will do my best to bring the matter forward as soon as possible.
