Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will ensure that, in the Government's promised White Paper on Metrication and its effect on the United Kingdom, details will be given of the financial costs to the country in general, industry, and the consuming public in particular; and to what extent these stated costs will increase the cost of living.

Mr. Ridley

I invite the hon. Gentleman to await the publication of the White Paper.
