HC Deb 21 October 1932 vol 269 c484W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many prosecutions have taken place in respect of infringements of the Sale of Food Order, 1921, with regard to the requirement of labelling upon exposure for sale of imported meat in each of the years 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930 and 1931; and how many convictions were secured?


Power to enforce the provisions of the Order referred to rests with the local authorities, and I regret I have no information as to the number of prosecutions that have taken place thereunder or as to the number of convictions secured.
