§ Sir WILLIAM BULL
asked, in relation to the recent Act passed insisting that manufacturers of articles patented in this country should manufacture here, how many Foreign firms have erected workshops in this country since the passing of the Act; and in how many cases patents granted to foreigners have been revoked on the ground that the conditions of the Act have not been complied with.
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
It is impossible to say how many foreign firms have erected workshops in this country since the passing of the Patents Act. The number of patents already ordered to be revoked under Section 27 is eight. In three of these cases the order has been appealed against. The total number of applications under the Section, up to the present date, for orders of revocation is 33, of which two have been withdrawn.
