HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 c261W
28. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is now able to make a statement regarding consultations with manufacturers about the sale of toothpaste in standardised prescribed quantities.

Sir G. Howe

I hope very shortly to make the proposed order prescribing more closely the choice of units of measurement in which toothpaste is marked. Prescribed quantities require consultation not only with manufacturers but also within the Community.
