HC Deb 13 December 1912 vol 45 cc963-4W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he has received from the Central and Associated Chambers of Agriculture, and from other agricultural or trading oganisations, copies of resolutions passed by them in favour of the adoption of a uniform system of weights and measures; and whether His Majesty's Government will take any steps in the matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The representations which have been made to me show that there is great diversity of opinion on the subject, and I think that it would be premature for the Government to take any action at present.
