§ 51. Mr. Russell
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give a decision about the withdrawal of the option under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1926, which allows imported goods which are required to be marked to bear the words "Foreign" or "Empire" instead of the name of the country of origin.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
The matter is still under consideration, but I hope to announce a decision on policy soon.
