§ 36. Mr. Colvin
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the report of the Eden committee about implementation of section 19 of the Weights and Measures Act 1979 outlawing brim measure beer-glasses.
§ Mr. Butcher
I believe that it would be premature to consider implementing section 19 of the Weights and Measures Act 1979 until alternative voluntary measures have been explored and consultation on the Eden committee report has been completed.
