asked the Minister for Trade whether he will introduce legislation to require clear origin marking of all French-manufactured goods for sale in the United Kingdom, in order that the public may know that they are of foreign origin.

Our current origin marking requirements, which cover a wide range of consumer goods, were brought into effect only on 1 January. I have no plans to introduce further regulations at the moment.
