asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to take arising from the Report of the Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures for the year ended 31st March, 1945, to safeguard the public from short weight; and whether he will now introduce consolidating legislation on the lines suggested.

I have noted the suggestions in this Report, and as soon as pressure on the staff of the Board is lessened, I will consider whether there should be an inquiry into these and other suggestions that have been made regarding the Weights and Measures legislation.
