HL Deb 30 October 1956 vol 199 cc1165-6

Clause 8, page 14, line 14, at end insert— ("Provided that this subsection shall not extend the operation of subsection (5) of this section to a record in respect of which the condition specified in paragraph (b) of that subsection is not fulfilled, unless the words comprised in the record (as well as the musical work) were published before the first day of July, nineteen. hundred and twelve, and were so published as words to be sung to. or spoken incidentally to or in association with. the music. (10) Nothing in this section shall be construed as authorising the importation of records which could not lawfully be imported apart from this section; and accordingly, for the purposes of any provision of this Act relating to imported articles, where the question arises whether the making of a record made outside the United Kingdom would have constituted an infringement of copyright if the record had been made in the United Kingdom, that question shall he determined as if subsection (l) of this section had not been enacted.")
