HC Deb 18 July 1994 vol 247 c21W
Dame Angela Rumbold

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what is his policy in respect of pre-stamping disposable products.

Mr. Neil Hamilton

I have it in mind to make use of the powers proposed by clauses 1–4 of the Deregulation and Contracting Out Bill, once enacted, to amend the Weights and Measures Act 1985 so as to make pre-stamping lawful in defined circumstances and subject to prescribed conditions.
