HC Deb 20 May 1968 vol 765 c41W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration his Department has given to extending the application to liquid bottled goods of the Weights and Measures Act prescribing for the accurate, reliable and obvious marking of weight contents.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

A substantial number of liquid bottled goods is already required to be marked with an accurate statement of the quantity of the contents. The Weights and Measures (Marking) Regulations 1964 require the marking to be in a prominent position on the container where it can be easily read. I have no proposals at present to extend these marking requirements to other bottled goods.
