§ 86. Mr. MILLAR
asked what steps the Food Controller proposes to take to protect the public against the excessive prices still being charged for many staple articles of food?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
The Food Controller announced yesterday in the House of Lords that he hoped to be able to secure a substantial reduction in the price of cattle and consequently in the price of meat. A statement of his general policy will be made later.
§ Mr. MILLAR
Are we to understand that nothing is to be done by the Food Controller till the 1st September, and that up to that date we are to be at the mercy of food profiteers?
§ Mr. G. LAMBERT
Can the hon. Gentleman say when the Food Controller proposes to issue his Order in regard to the price of cattle?
