HC Deb 16 June 1921 vol 143 cc638-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has any information to the effect that France has passed a law that all goods made in France by French citizens shall bear the words Unis France; and when the alteration of the Merchandise Marks Act will take place, and prevent Britishers buying foreign goods thinking they are British?


The words quoted are part of a trade mark indicative of French origin which has been widely adopted in France, but where use is not, so far as I am aware, enforced by law. As regards the second part of the question, I cannot add anything to the reply I gave my hon. Friend on 12th May.
