John Lahart: The emissions scandals in respect of Volkswagen and Audi in the United States show that these are really big consumer issues.

Legal Metrology (Measuring Instruments) Bill 2017: Second Stage (14 Jul 2017)

Maurice Quinlivan: I am delighted to be here to speak on the Bill. When I started looking at the issue of metrology I did not know much about it. I read the digest provided by the library and research service. I commend the researchers for what is an excellent digest. It was a very good read. Deputy Lahart took the best line out of it, which I was going to use myself. I might still use it anyway; we will...

Legal Metrology (Measuring Instruments) Bill 2017: Second Stage (14 Jul 2017)

John Lahart: I do not think I have had an opportunity to congratulate the Minister on her new position. Metrology is a topic to set the heart racing, clearly in a measured way.

I am a reasonably new Deputy and I have heard a lot of Deputies speak here - I mean this respectfully - who have spoken a lot, and quite a number of them have repeated...

I came across an anecdote in the Bills digest from ancient times which indicated that:The death penalty faced those who forgot or neglected their duty to calibrate the standard unit of length at each full moon....
