HC Deb 08 December 1925 vol 189 c293W

asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) whether his attention has been called to the resolution of the British Empire Producers Organisation declaring that neither the propaganda in favour of Empire goods nor the present public desire to purchase them can be effective without clear means of identification; and whether, in view of such resolution, he will consider the urgency of introducing legislation giving effect to the recommendations of the Imperial Economic Committee that imported goods should be marked Empire (and the country) or foreign at the points of import and of sale;

(2) whether he has yet considered the desirability of introducing legislation requiring that all advertisements of goods manufactured or produced outside the Empire shall expressly and conspicuously state that such goods are foreign made, and that no such goods shall be exposed or exhibited for sale without being prominently labelled foreign made; and whether he has any statement to make regarding the matter?


I have not seen the particular resolution referred to,
