HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 c156W
45. Mr. Norman Dodds

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the concern arising from his decision to lay a draft Statutory Instrument, the Weights and Measures (Exemption) Order, 1965, which will give a further delaying period of one year after the original delaying period of two years, as a result of representations made by manufacturers; as this is contrary to the best interests of consumers, what consideration has been given to this aspect; and what consumers' organisations were consulted before deciding on a further period of delay.

Mr. Darling

I would refer my hon. Friend to the explanation I gave last night on the Resolution for approving the draft Order.
