§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection, since the coming into force of the statutory instrument requiring restaurants to specify the quantity of wine contained in carafes, how many convictions have been obtained for breaches.
Mr. Alan Williams
Prosecutions for breaches of this order, or of other orders under the Weights and Measures Act, are a matter for local enforcement authorities. Details are contained in their annual reports, which relate to the financial year. Since the order only came into force on 2nd September 1974 I regret that this information is not yet available.
