HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 c255
74. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the recent prosecutions connected with the illegal sale of decorated earthenware; whether he is satisfied with the present machinery for dealing with its disposal and distribution; and what further action he contemplates taking to put the matter on a more satisfactory basis.

Mr. Rhodes

Yes, Sir. We propose in the near future to make a new pottery Order which will contain further safeguards against black market activities.

Mr. Davies

Will the House have the advantage of hearing what are the proposals in the Order?

Mr. Driberg

Yes, the Opposition will pray against it.

Mr. Rhodes

Certainly, as soon as the Order is laid.
