HC Deb 29 May 1934 vol 290 c6

asked the President of the Board of Trade what instructions with regard to the nomenclature of wines have been given to the British delegates now attending the London Conference of the International Union for the Protection of Property; and is he aware of the principle recognised that such nomenclature is generally recognised as geographic rather than generic?


Instructions to delegates of His Majesty's Government at international conferences are necessarily confidential, and I am therefore not at liberty to disclose them. With regard to the last part of the question, I do not think that the principle referred to can be said to be generally recognised.
