HC Deb 12 May 1931 vol 252 c970
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?


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.
