§ 26. Commander SOUTHBY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the introduction of a marking Order for Empire-grown tea, in order that the public may know whether they are buying a British or foreign article?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
An application for the marking of imported tea was considered by one of the Standing Committees under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926. Their report, of which I am forwarding a copy to the hon. and gallant Member, was not in favour of a compulsory marking Order.
