HC Deb 22 February 1927 vol 202 c1548
5. Mr. W. BAKER

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the excessive retail prices which are being charged for chilled beef; and whether he proposes to call the attention of the Food Council to the matter?

6. Dr. WATTS

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action, if any, the Food Council intend to take in the case of those towns where they are satisfied from their investigations that excessive prices for meat are charged by the local butchers?


The Food Council is at present engaged on a general inquiry into the retail prices of meat, and it is not possible to say what will be the result.
