HC Deb 08 June 1976 vol 912 cc644-5W
Miss Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will now introduce legislation to require wine in carafes to be sold in prescribed quantities and for a statement of those quantities to be displayed to intending purchasers.

Mr. John Fraser

I have today laid before Parliament a draft Order which, subject to parliamentary approval, will require that wine in carafes for consumption on the premises shall only be sold in the following prescribed quantities: 25 cl, 50 cl, 75 cl and 1 litre; or 10 fluid ounces and 20 fluid ounces. The draft Order would also require a written statement showing the quantities in which wine in carafes is offered on those premises to be displayed.
