§ 3. Captain GARRO-JONES
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that the Weights and Measures Acts are being strictly administered in every respect?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
So far as I am aware the Weights and Measures Acts are, generally speaking, strictly administered by the local authorities under those Acts. There are, however, a large number of authorities concerned operating under very diverse conditions and it is inevitable that there should be some variation in local procedure. Every effort is made by the Board within the limits of their powers to secure effective uniformity in administration.
