HC Deb 21 July 1919 vol 118 c890
55. Mr. HIGHAM

asked the Prime Minister if he is in a position to announce what steps will be taken by the Government to curtail profiteering pending the Report of the Select Committee; if the Government intends to set up tribunals for the purpose of hearing charges against those who are said to be profiteering; and, if so, what powers will be given to these tribunals?


asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the coming Parliamentary Recess, he will, without waiting for the Report of a Select Committee, take steps to check profiteering in boots, clothing, and other articles of necessity?


I cannot at present add anything to the previous replies on this subject.
