§ 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.
