HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c2007
57. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the possible ultimate purchase of Covent Garden Market by the State or the county council, he is aware that rents for the stands are now being raised by the operating company to the extent of at least 60 per cent.; and whether the fact will be recorded, since otherwise any such ultimate purchase price could be thereby increased to the extent of about £1,000,000 sterling?


This question is hypothetical, and I, therefore, cannot answer it.
