HC Deb 25 March 1975 vol 889 c136W
Mr. Snape

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will make a statement concerning the policy of Her Majesty's Government regarding the future of the patents system.

Mr. Clinton Davis:

I intend to publish a White Paper in the middle of April, setting out the Government's proposals for new patent legislation and the future of the British patent system. The White Paper will be supplemented by a consultative document which will be published simultaneously.
