HC Deb 31 January 1972 vol 830 cc13-4W
65. Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will introduce legislation to require the weight to be stated on all packets of biscuit cereals.

Mr. Ridley

No. Regulations require packages of all cereal breakfast biscuits weighing individually a third of an ounce or more to be marked with the number of biscuits. I consider that this information is more helpful to the buyer than the total net weight.
