Lord Tebbit

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Units of Measurements Directive which prohibits from 1st October 1995 the sale of shandy in draught by the pint supports the Prime Minister's statement that "we have won the argument to ensure that Europe intervenes as little as possible in our everyday lives".

The Minister of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Earl Ferrers)

Draught shandy may continue to be sold in pint glasses from 1 October 1995.
