BRANDING OF GOODS N.S.W. Bill Amended. Sydney, October 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Advertiser — 3 October 1931

BRANDING OF GOODS N.S.W. BiU Amended Sydney, October 2. Several important amendments were made to the Factories and Shops Amendment BiU in the Legislative Soundll last night. The BUI sought to enforce manufacturers to brand goods for sale in New South Wales with their name and full address, and was de signed primarily to check competition on the New South Wales markets from other States. The Legislative Council amended the Bill so that it will not be necessary to * include the name of the State of manu facture in the trade description. It will still be necessary, to brand the article with the full name and address of the manufacturer, however. A move to have this provision deleted was de feated on the casting voie of the Chair man of Committees. Another amend ment fixed the date for operation of the legislation at January 1, 1932.
