HC Deb 27 January 1981 vol 997 c343W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what steps he is taking to ensure that garages which sell petrol in litres also display the price per gallon prominently.

Mrs. Oppenheim

Under the Price Marking (Petrol) Order 1980 it became obligatory from 1 January in the case of metric sales of petrol for the equialent price per gallon to be displayed with equal prominence to the price per litre, both at the pump and in any voluntary roadside display: enforcement is the responsibility of local weights and measures authorities.
