§ 39. Mr. ALFRED SHORT
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received any representations in favour of the administration of the Weights and Measures Acts being transferred from the police and put in the hands of civilian inspectors; and whether he will consider the advisability of taking steps to this end?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
The question has received much consideration, but I do not see my way at present to interfere with the discretion vested in local authorities with regard to it.
