HC Deb 16 July 1906 vol 160 c1359

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the resolution passed unanimously by the Chambers of Commerce of the Empire at their recent congress, recommending that a Royal Commission should be appointed by His Majesty's Government to investigate and, if possible, recommend uniform systems of weights and measures and currency to be adopted throughout the British Empire; and whether His Majesty's Government will take action in accordance with this recommendation.


His Majesty's Government have not had time to consider the evidence on which the Chambers of Commerce adopted the resolution referred to, and they are not prepared at present to make any statement on the subject.
