Mea­sures are very con­fus­ing

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

BREXIT aside, I still find the mix­ture of im­pe­rial and met­ric weight mea­sures in use by some re­tail­ers very con­fus­ing when the law I think is quite clear.

The only prod­ucts you can sell in im­pe­rial mea­sures are draught beer/cider, milk in re­turn­able con­tain­ers (by the pint) and pre­cious met­als (by troy ounces). They can dis­play an im­pe­rial mea­sure­ment along­side the met­ric mea­sure­ment but it can’t stand out more than the met­ric mea­sure­ment.

Some of the su­per­mar­kets have added to the con­fu­sion, I sus­pect de­lib­er­ately, by pric­ing some fruit and veg by the item with no men­tion of per lb or per kg.
