HC Deb 13 February 1986 vol 91 c520W
Mr. Higgins

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will introduce a measure requiring packets of potato crisps to be marked with the weight of the contents.

Mr. Howard

Article 14(3)(h) of the Weights and Measures Act 1963 (Miscellaneous Foods) Order 1984 already requires packets of potato crisps (and other similar snack food products) weighing 1 oz (approximately 28.5g) or more to be marked with the net weight of the contents. From 1 July 1989 this lower limit is being reduced to 25g.
