HC Deb 22 April 1971 vol 815 c433W
54. Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a further statement on the Government's intentions about metrication in the public sector.

Mr. Ridley

No. I would ask my hon. Friend to await the White Paper on metrication which should be published shortly. This will outline the Government's views on the use of metric units in the economy generally, including the public sector.
