HC Deb 24 March 1919 vol 114 c25
51. Colonel Sir HENRY NORRIS

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the high prices which are being demanded from the working classes, especially in the East End of London, for articles of domestic furniture, the charges being in many instances 200 to 300 per cent. above the pre-war standard; and whether he proposes to institute any and, if so, what legislation to deal with the situation?


I do not think that any action By the Government is possible.
