HC Deb 30 June 1966 vol 730 c320W
Mr. Dickens

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will introduce legislation in the current Session to make it compulsory for manufacturers to mark boots and shoes to indicate the materials used in their production.

Mr. Darling

My right hon. Friend intends to introduce, as soon as Parliamentary time permits, legislation which would provide a general power to require informative labelling of specified classes of goods. I cannot at present say whether it will be possible this Session.
