§ 40. Mr. D. GRAHAM
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to statements in the Press foreshadowing an increase in rates of freight; and whether the Question of freight rates will be submitted to an appropriate Committee for investigation, in view of the fact that the matter does not come within the scope of the Profiteering Act?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of SHIPPING (Colonel Leslie Wilson)
I have been asked to reply. My attention has been called to the statements to which the hon. Member refers, and I would suggest that if the rise in freights does take place, he should put down his question again.
