asked the President of the Board of Trade how many complaints he has received this year about infringements of the Merchandise Marks Acts; and in how many cases he has instituted legal proceedings.

Forty-one, Sir. Legal proceedings have so far been instituted in 12 cases.

Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to say what has been the result of the proceedings that have been instituted? How many successes has he secured so far?

I think that in eight cases the proceedings have proved successful, in two unsuccessful and that two are still pending.
