HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c223W
59. Miss Lestor

asked the President of the Board of Trade in view of the coming into force of the Trade Descriptions Act, what steps are being taken to ensure that all imported goods carry the name of the country of origin.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

None. The Act does not enable a marking order to be confined to imported goods except in very special circumstances; and it would be neither desirable nor practicable to impose a universal origin-marking requirement.
