§ 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.
