HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 cc265-6W
Mr. Dean

asked the Minister of Technology when he expects to complete his inquiry on engineering standards practice.

Mr. Cousins

It is not possible at present to set a term to this inquiry which will embrace the wide studies described in the Answers I gave on 15th June to the hon. Member for Gains-borough (Mr. Kimball) and to the hon. Member for Oswestry (Mr. Biffen). Conclusions will be implemented as they are reached; action has already been taken to initiate a new series of British Metric Standards.
