HC Deb 17 March 1955 vol 538 cc1433-4
7. Mr. Russell

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now give a decision about the withdrawal of the option under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, which allows imported goods which are required to be marked to bear the words "Foreign" or "Empire" instead of the name of the country of origin.

The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Peter Thorneycroft)

I had hoped to announce a decision before this. I will do so as soon as possible.
