§ 69. Mr. KELLAWAY
asked what was the average price of wheat in London, Paris, and Berlin during 1912?
§ Mr. GULLAND
In 1912 the "Gazette" average price of British wheat in London was 36s. and the average price of wheat imported into London was 35s. 10d. In Paris and Berlin the average official prices of wheat—quoted irrespective of origin—were 50s. 4d. and 46s. 6d. respectively. In all cases these prices relate to an imperial quarter.
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Can my hon. Friend say whether the state of things revealed by these figures explains the alleged death of the food taxes?
