There is already an Order made under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, requiring the marking of Empire and foreign bacon. I have no power tinder the Act to require the marking of home supplies of bacon or other foods, and I must leave it to the interests concerned to decide for themselves, as in the case of butchers' meat, whether voluntary action is desirable.
Yes, I think it is, broadly speaking. I am sure my hon. Friend will agree that where there is a marked superiority in the home produce the retailers are likely to mark the product as home produced in their own interests.
