HC Deb 20 May 1968 vol 765 cc41-2W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade what further study his Department has made of the recommendations of the Hodgson Committee on weights and measures legislation; what action he plans to take; and whether he will make a statement.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

The Weights and Measures Act 1963 was based on the recommendations made by the Hodgson Committee in December 1950 and on subsequent consultations. In considering any further exercise of the powers conferred by the Act, the Board of Trade will have regard to those recommendations, in so far as they are relevant.
