HC Deb 23 February 1866 vol 181 c963

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether, in the Bill contemplated by the Government for the better Regulation of Weights and Measures, provision will be made as to a scale of uniformity in Weights and Measures, to be applicable equally to all parts of the United Kingdom?


said, in reply, that his hon. Friend did not quite understand the answer which he had given yesterday. It related to the Exchequer standards, and to copies made of those standards. The present question related more to the law as to weights and measures in force in England and Ireland, which was not directly the object of the Bill in question.
