HC Deb 20 July 1944 vol 402 cc371-2W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Minister of Food what reply he intends to make to the recent representations of the Association of County Councils of Scotland regarding the ineffectiveness of the Weights and Measures Act at the present time.

Colonel Llewellin

The Association is being informed that, in my view, it would not be right to use emergency legislation to extend in the way suggested the Sale of Food (Weights and Measures) Act, 1926, which was passed after careful consideration in Parliament.
