asked the Prime Minister whether his attention had been drawn to a resolution by the Association of British Chambers of Commerce, supported by the other influential organisations, advocating the introduction of a decimal system of coinage and the metric system of weights and measures; and whether he will consider moving for the setting up of a Committee to investigate and report.
