Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 23rd July 1959.

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to make a statement concerning the progress made by the British Standards Institution on a national approvals scheme being made in conjunction with the electrical industry, discussions of which commenced in October, 1957.

There is no reason why they should not be.
