Aim of The BWMA

The BWMA's stated aim is to uphold the freedom to use the Imperial system and to oppose the compulsory imposition of the Metric system in the UK. By the time of the modern BWMA's founding in 1995, British schoolchildren had been educated using only metric measures since 1974 (earlier in some places), and British industry had changed to using metric tools and equipment during the 1980's and were in most cases manufacturing to metric standards since about that time.
