HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 46 c201W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is taking steps to enable weighing machine manufacturers to test and certify their own machines, subject to random checks by his inspectors.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

Proposals have been received from the responsible trade association and are being studied by the Department. It is too early to say whether such changes could be introduced.
