HC Deb 28 February 1972 vol 832 c16W
72. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take action under the Weights and Measures Act, 1963, to ensure that tinned fruit and vegetables are marked with their drained weight.

Sir J. Eden

I accept that such a declaration would be useful to the consumer but measurement and enforcement raise serious technical problems, for which we are still trying to find a solution.
