Weights and Measures Consultation

Don’t be fooled by the pretend outrage over the Government’s June 2022 Consultation ‘Choice on Units of Measurement: Marking and Sales’. No-one is going to be forced to use pounds and ounces. Some heritage shops and markets might choose to use them. We might see the re-appearance of the pint bottle of beer. A 454gm jar of honey might be re-labelled as a pound of honey (which is what it is). Do you have a problem with that? We will still be buying our petrol in litres. We will still be buying our 800gm loaf of bread. So get over it!
