HC Deb 03 August 1943 vol 391 c2098W
Major Procter

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to ensure that, after the war, when many firms have been concentrated and the operation of their trade marks suspended, there will be a speedy resumption of the use of such trade marks, as otherwise they may, if not on the market, be prejudicially affected by imitations evolved in competing countries?

Mr. Dalton

I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that the trade marks of concentrated firms are fully protected under the Defence Regulations, for as long as the concentration continues and for one year afterwards.
