HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c379W
Mr. Woodhouse

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will amend the Weights and Measures Act 1963 to require manufacturers of canned fruit and vegetables to mark the drained weight of the contents on every container.

Mr. Emery

My Department's examination of the drained weight problem is now completed but I am not yet ready to make a statement.
