HC Deb 04 August 1909 vol 8 cc1960-1W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state what has been the result of his recent circular letter to local authorities with regard to the stricter enforcement of the Act which compels bakers to sell bread by weight?


Of the local authorities that have so far replied to the recent circular a large majority undertake the enforcement of the law as to the sale of bread by weight. I hope that the circular will have had a good effect in drawing attention to the statutory requirements in the matter.
