HC Deb 28 September 1931 vol 257 c22
26. Mrs. MANNING

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the appeals of the Prime Minister and the President of the Board of Trade to help the nation in the present emergency by wise spending on British goods, he will take steps to call attention to the facilities which the public now have through the national mark of identifying British farm products?


I will gladly consider within the means at my disposal what steps can be taken to give effect to the hon. Member's proposal, and I trust that especially at the present time British housewives, as well as retailers, will take the fullest possible advantage of this means of identifying good quality home produce.


Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it would be possible to persuade cinema proprietors to issue this appeal on the screens, or some of the big corporations to do something in the matter?


The Ministry have taken every step within their power to make this as widely known as possible.
