§ Mr. Henry Clark
asked the President of the Board of Trade what discussions he has had with the brewing industry and licensed victuallers to establish acceptable metric equivalents to the pint, half-pint and quart; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
None. I understand, however, that there have been some exploratory international discussions about new metric sizes for bottles, and that the British Standards Institute has invited the Brewers Society to comment on these proposals insofar as they relate to beer bottles.
