HC Deb 15 March 1967 vol 743 cc98-9W
75. Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will introduce legislation requiring all overseas suppliers to the United Kingdom to make formal declaration on their export invoices as to the percentage of work done on the finished goods in the declared country of origin of the goods.

Mr. Darling

No; but the Protection of Consumers (Trade Descriptions) Bill, which the Government will introduce as soon as possible, would enable the Board of Trade to make Orders clarifying the existing statutory prohibition on the importation of goods bearing false indications of origin.
