Dundee Measures Pass Test.
In 1970, the number of new pint and half-pint beer measures destined for public houses and hotels in the region and sent in for initial testing increased by about 7,000 says Mr J Millar, Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures, Dundee, in his annual report.
It is not generally appreciated, he adds, that these glasses, which are normally described as ‘Government Stamped’ are in fact tested and stamped in certain weights and measures department.
This may be due to the fact that the design of the Inspector’s stamp of accuracy embodies a Royal Crown.
More than 27,000 were tested and 125 rejected, a much improved position.
In 1966, for instance, more than 10 per cent of those tested were rejected.
