Default Re: 13 amp plug question

I called BSI and was told that old versions of the standards are available but are chargeable, I think the price quoted was half the cost of the current standard. I'm afraid that my view is that the cost of standards is prohibitive and so counterproductive.
Yes, "prohibitive" is being very polite in my opinion.

I also have (had) an MK plug with a little flag under the main securing screw which could be locked in one of 3 positions, to denote what type of fuse should be fitted.
