Sir JOHN QUICK - In asking the Minister for Trade and Customs, upon notice -

1.   Whether it is true that the Collector of Customsin Melbourne has impounded and refused to deliver to the agent of the importer (Sam. Keam and Co., of Bendigo) certain American Dunlop bicycle tyres unless and until a royalty of 2s. 6d. per tyre, alleged to be due, is paid to the Dunlop Tyre Company ?

2.   Under what law - specifying the number and section of the Act - has this been done ?

3.   Will patentees be required in future to enforce their patent rights at their own expense in the ordinary courts ?

I desire to explain that I have placed this question upon the business-paper at the earnest request of a constituent, who says that the answer given by the Minister on a previous occasion was not correct, and that he wrote to the department in reference to the matter two months ago, but received no answer.

Suggest corrections
