§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he has received the final report of the Eden committee on "Metrological Control of Equipment for Use for Trade"; if he will place a copy in the Library; how soon he expects to determine his policy on its recommendations; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Fletcher
I have just received the report of the Eden committee on metrological control. I shall study its contents carefully and expect it to publish the report as soon as possible. It is too early to estimate when recommendations might be implemented since extensive consultation may be necessary beforehand.
