HC Deb 17 November 1955 vol 546 c53W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider establishing one standard tenderometer for canning peas by which tenderometers at all factories can be set and checked by independent individuals such as are appointed for a similar purpose by the United States Department of Agriculture.

Mr. Amory

Consideration is being given in consultation with the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research to the possibilities of standardising tenderometers used for the evaluation of samples of green peas for canning or freezing.
