§ 49. Sir W. Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many nations have now signed the International Convention for the introduction of copyrights in connection with the breeding of plants and seeds; and when it is expected to come into operation.

Eight, including the United Kingdom. The Convention will come into force when three of the signatory States have ratified it; none has so far done so.
