§ 49. Captain STRICKLAND
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that foreign cartridge cases are being imported into this country bearing English trade marks and not accompanied by an indication of origin, in accordance with Rule 6 of Circular No. 33 as issued by the Board of Trade and the Commissioners of Customs; and whether he will take steps to enforce compliance with that rule?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
I have no reason to think that the requirements of the law in respect of the marking of imported cartridge cases have not been complied with.
§ Captain STRICKLAND
Has the attention of the Department been drawn to this matter, and has an inquiry been made?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
No evidence has been placed before the Department which would in the least conflict with the answer that I have given. If my hon. and gallant Friend likes to lay any evidence before me, I should be most happy to look into it.
