§ 18. Mr. Awbery
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware that loaves of bread usually called the 2 lb. and 1 lb. loaf only weigh 1¾ lb. and 14 ozs., respectively; and if he will amend the law so that the weight of these loaves will correspond with the names given to them, as was the case prior to the change in 1946.
§ Mr. Nugent
My right hon. Friend is aware of the changes which were made in 1946 in the weight units of loaves usually described as "large" and "small" respectively. This question is being reexamined in consultation with the interests concerned.
