§ Sir Irvine Patnick
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what action is available by his Department or trading standards officers if goods purporting to be made in Sheffield and so stamped are not; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. John M. Taylor
Under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968, it is a criminal offence to mark goods with a false indication of their place of manufacture or production. The Act empowers trading standards officers to prosecute cases of false origin marking in the courts.
