HC Deb 30 October 1975 vol 898 c602W
Mr. Gould

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection whether she will delay the introduction of metrication in the retailing of milk and other products so that unnecessary price increases to the consumer can be avoided.

Mr. Alan Williams

It is not Government policy to delay industry's plans for metrication. The introduction of metric quantities should not result in increases of price per unit of their products.
