HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 c7

asked the Prime Minister if he will appoint a small Commission, open to the Press, to ascertain how far the price of coal, increased railway charges, alleged trade union restrictions on output, double postage, high taxation, and other causes are so increasing the cost of production of British manufactured goods as to seriously restrict the demand for them?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Lloyd George)

My right hon. Friend's suggestion will be considered by the Government.
