HC Deb 19 April 1955 vol 540 cc3-4
6. Mr. Burden

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that certain textile manufacturers are using a mixture of Egyptian and Sudanese cotton and are marking the cloth as Egyptian cotton; and, in view of the fact that this is a contravention of the Merchandise Marks Act, whether he will take steps to prosecute.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

If my hon. Friend will let me have details, I will look into the matter.
