HC Deb 24 June 1931 vol 254 c451W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has anything further to state concerning the progress of the representations made to the United States Government in respect to reciprocal arrangements with Great Britain on the conditions pertaining to copyright in the two countries?


The Bill which had the purpose of revising the United States Copyright Law so as to remove the provisions inconsistent with the International Copyright Convention of 1928, failed to pass the Senate before the close of the last Session of Congress. I understand, however, that it is probable that a similar Bill will be introduced when the first Session of the Seventy-second Congress meets in December.
