HC Deb 06 July 1922 vol 156 c578
56. Major KELLEY

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he proposes to make sale by net weight obligatory for any household commodities besides tea and bread?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Baldwin)

The reply is in the negative. The legislation which has been introduced is confined to the two commodities whose sale by weight is already regulated by an Order of the Board of Trade.
