§ Mr. Skeet
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will issue statutory instruments under the Weights and Measures Act 1963 to deal with the problem of deceptive packaging of products such as deceptive glass shapes and partially filled boxes.
§ Mr. Emery
This problem does not fall clearly within the scope of weights and 439W measures law. Although it also falls out side the Fair Trading Bill, as drafted, I am considering the possibility of an amendment which would permit the Director-General of Fair Trading to recommend action in this field.
