Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 12th December 1957.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Government will now make regulations to implement the main recommendations of Part III of the Hodgson Committee Report on Weights and Measures.
My right hon. Friend proposes to make regulations based on such of those recommendations as can be implemented in this way.
Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that there is a widespread public demand for action on these lines, particularly from women's organisations? Can he now tell us how soon he will introduce the regulations?
The proposals will have to be discussed with the trade interests concerned, and we hope to be able to table the regulations within a period of about 12 months.
