HC Deb 31 May 1934 vol 290 cc347-8
32. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will bring in legislation or regulations to compel restaurants and hotels which supply imported meat to notify this fact on their menus or in some other manner which will ensure that their customers know that they are not being supplied with English goods?


Legislation of the nature indicated by my hon. and gallant Friend would not, I am afraid, be practicable, and I regret I am unable to adopt his suggestion.


Would it not be of great benefit to everybody if such legislation could be brought in?


The case was examined when the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, was going through the House. It would be too long to explain the full case now, but it was thought to be impracticable then.
