HC Deb 08 December 1931 vol 260 cc1687-8
86. Mr. REMER

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that, in several of the large stores in London and the provinces in connection with the Buy British movement, large signs are exhibited with the words Genuine Macclesfield Silk,, whereas only one piece of the silk so exhibited was manufactured in Macclesfield and the remainder was of foreign origin; and what steps he will take to deal with such cases of misrepresentation?


If my hon. Friend will furnish the with particulars of the cases which he has in mind, I will consider whether action can be taken.


If the right hon. Gentleman will go into any of these stores, he will find that this is happening.
