HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 cc46-7W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects to publish the White Paper on Metrication; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley

We cannot yet say when the White Paper on Metrication will be published but it will be as soon as possible. We do not wish to anticipate its content at this stage by any further statement.
