HC Deb 03 March 1919 vol 113 cc28-9

asked the Minister of National Service when it is likely that the Report of the Committee on the provision of safeguards for the consumer against commercial monopolies and trusts will be published; and whether, in view of the continuance of high prices, he will endeavour to expedite both the publication of that Report and the preparation of the necessary legislation?

The MINISTER of RECONSTRUCTION (Sir Auckland Geddes)

I am informed by my hon. Friend the Chairman of the Committee that the Report will soon be ready. Until I have seen it I am not in a position to answer the last part of the question.
