§ Mr. Colvin
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he has any plans to introduce legislation on tare weights for barrels and casks used in the sale of bulk beer.
§ Mr. Butcher
The Brewers' Society and the National Licensed Victuallers Association are themselves seeking to regulate the filling of beer barrels by the introduction of a code of practice. Accordingly, I have no plans to legislate on this matter at present.
