12. Mr. W. M. ADAMSON (for Mr. FENBY)
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the growing practice among manufacturers of fixing the retail price of their manufactures and of the unwholesome effects of this practice on free competition, he will introduce legislation to compel such manufacturers to affix to their products a label intimating to the public that the retail price is so fixed, so that consumers may have full opportunity to resist the spread of this practice if they desire to do so?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
As at present advised, I do not see my way to adopt the course suggested by the hon. Member.
