HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c148W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to ensure the correctness of tyre pressure gauges which are at the present time mainly operated by customers themselves.

Mr. Mulley

Our policy is to encourage Weights and Measures authorities to carry out voluntary checks of tyre pressure gauges. And this they have been doing increasingly. There are no powers to make such checking compulsory and I have no plans for seeking them.
