HC Deb 20 November 1968 vol 773 c278W
68. Mr. Gordon Campbell

asked the Minister of Technology if he will make a statement on the timing of the change over to the metric system by retailers.

Mr. Benn

The date for changeover to the metric system by retailers will be the subject of future consultation undertaken by the Metrication Board and it is unlikely that there will be one single date for this changeover.
