It remains our aim to publish for consultation in the new year an Order consolidating and simplifying the weights and measures provisions relating to food. This will take into account the earlier consultations on the 'full pint' issue, and incorporate our conclusions. However, the timing of the draft Order will depend on the progress of discussions between the community institutions on the Commission's proposals on specified quantities.
