HC Deb 19 December 1952 vol 509 c279W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will consider requiring horticultural products, whether imported or home-grown, being made subject to marking orders under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926.

Sir T. Dugdale

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Faversham (Mr. P. Wells) on 4th December. There is no power under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, to require the marking of home-grown produce.
