§ 40. Mr. BOLAND
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the resolution passed by the Grocers' and Provision Merchants' Association of Glasgow to the effect that all sellers of margarine should be registered; and whether, in view of the frequent prosecutions rendered necessary by the practice of passing off margarine as Irish butter in Glasgow, steps will be taken to put an end to this fraudulent method of trading?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I have not received practicable suggestions for any form of action that is likely to be more effective than the frequent prosecutions to which my hon. Friend refers.
