HC Deb 03 August 1971 vol 822 cc274-5W
54. Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will seek to implement the proposals drawn up by the Institute of Weights and Measures Administration, a copy of which is in his possession, with regard to the setting up of trading standards offices, as a measure of consumer protection.

Mr. Ridley

I have noted this report, which the Government will shortly be discussing with the Institute.
