HC Deb 17 November 1919 vol 121 c595
18. Mr. GRANT

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can state the number of prosecutions which have taken place under the Profiteering Act; and in how many cases such prosecutions have been successful?


The reports which have up to the present been received from local committees show that prosecutions have been ordered in forty-one cases. Out of the four cases so far reported to have been heard, in three fines were inflicted and the fourth was dismissed with costs.
