HC Deb 15 March 1973 vol 852 c438W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will issue an order under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 to provide for a simple quality rating for beer based on original gravity and alcohol.

Sir G. Howe

No. It would be appropriate for any statutory requirement relating to the quality of beer to be made under the Food and Drugs Act 1955, which is a matter for my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
