§ 7. Mr. CAMPBELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade the subjects now under consideration by the Food Council; when this body has last reported to him; how often it has met since the beginning of the year; and whether it is now investigating the rise in the price of bread?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
The Food Council have in hand enquiries into flour, meat, milk and tea prices. Their last Report to me was made on 5th February; they have held three meetings, as a full Council, and their Executive Committee have held 15 meetings, since the beginning of the year. Certain investigations into provincial bread prices are being conducted.
