In 1904 the British House of Lords passed a Bill on the third
reading for the adoption of the metric system of weights and measures
in Great Britain. The Bill proposed that the units of weight and
measure throughout the whole of the British Empire should be the
kilogramme and the metre. It was proposed further to make the metric
system compulsory in all contracts and other business transactions
between private individuals, under pain of invalidity of such contracts
or transactions. Up to the present this movement has not had a
practical result.
