HC Deb 25 February 1932 vol 262 c569W
Lieut.-Colonel MOORE

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can now state what action he intends to take with regard to the application of designations, such as "Wiltshire" and "Ayrshire," to foreign bacon in retail shops?


I have had this matter under consideration for some time, and, if satisfactory evidence is forthcoming that any person is applying designations such as "Wiltshire" or "Ayrshire" to bacon in retail shops which can be proved to be imported foreign bacon, I shall be prepared to institute proceedings under the Merchandise Marks Acts.
