HC Deb 06 March 1922 vol 151 cc821-2
1. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has yet had an opportunity of investigating the prices now being charged for beer to the public; and whether the Board of Trade has any proposal for protecting the public if the charges of profiteering against the brewers are substantiated?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Baldwin)

I have nothing at present to add to the answers which I gave the hon. and gallant Member on Monday last.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Can the right hon. Gentleman give me any idea how long the investigation will be, and whether, in fact, the Board of Trade are pursuing this matter with activity?


With regard to the second part of the question, we are displaying such activity as we are capable of, and as to the other part, I am afraid I cannot name a time at the moment.
