HC Deb 23 June 1915 vol 72 c1182W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture, with reference to the annual report of the Commercial Control Branch, whether, in the case of firms which have been successfully prosecuted for fraudulent practices, their names can be given when the cases are referred to in the report, seeing that such publicity is an added deterrent to a repetition of the offence and a protection for the honest trader?


The Board consider that there are grave objections to the publication in the annual reports of their Commercial Control Branch of the names of persons convicted of offences under the Acts to which those reports refer.
