HC Deb 03 November 1947 vol 443 c171W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he is taking to clarify the validity or otherwise of German trade marks outside Germany.

Mr. Mayhew

The validity of a trade mark in any country depends on the law of the country concerned. His Majesty's Government is at present seeking the views of certain other Governments concerning the validity of German trade marks; an announcement on this subject will be made in due course.
