HC Deb 23 October 1972 vol 843 c172W
45. Mrs. Doris Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what consultations have taken place with producers regarding consistency in the quantity marking of washing powders and detergents in preparation for metric conversion.

Mr. Onslow

Officials of the Department have had consultations with the trade association with a view to a greater measure of standardisation. We have also been in close touch with international bodies working in this field, notably the European Committee for Standardisation. Further discussions with consumer bodies are expected shortly.
