Philip Davies MP's Early Day Motion on Imperial measures

Davies_philip "That this House welcomes the fact that imperial measures will not now become an illegal form of measurement in the UK for the foreseeable future; abhors the fact that traders are not allowed to sell only in imperial measurements even if their customers specifically want to buy items in imperial measurements; calls on the Government to end this attack on people's freedom of choice by immediately bringing forward proposals to remove the legal requirement to sell in metric measurements and to de-criminalise the selling of goods in this traditional way; and pays tribute to Steve Thoburn who became a martyr for standing up and fighting for his customers and the rights of the British people; and supports the campaign to award him a posthumous pardon."
