§ 114. Mr. Burden
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the word "preferential" has been used in some sections of the hosiery trade to describe imperfect goods; and this description is being applied to substandard seconds or imperfect goods in contravention of the Merchandise Marks Act; and, as this is designed to mislead the public, if he will initiate prosecutions in the public interest.
§ Mr. H. Strauss
I have seen references to the practice mentioned in the first part of the Question. The Board of Trade will consider a prosecution under the Act, if they obtain sufficient evidence.
