§ Dr. CHAPPLE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware 2776W that Siberian tinned salmon is being sold in Britain bearing labels indicating that gold medals had been awarded in Edinburgh, 1902; London, 1905; Paris, 1905; Bruxelles, 1905, and Paris 1906, when, as a fact, these medals were awarded to British Columbia salmon on those dates; and whether he proposes to take any steps to protect British consumers from such deception??
I am not aware of the practice referred to by the hon. Member, but if he will send me specimens of the labels in question I shall be happy to consider whether any action can be taken in the matter under existing legislation.
