16. Mr. R. S. YOUNG
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will inquire if any trading, selling, or price-fixing association exists between the English and Danish bacon trades?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The organisation of the bacon trade is described in a report of 1928 issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. If my hon. Friend will be good enough to tell me more in detail what he has in mind, I will consider the possibility of making further inquiries.
§ Mr. HERBERT GIBSON
Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to curtail the activity of all price-fixing associations?
§ Mr. GRAHAM
That would probably involve legislation, and I could not promise legislation of that kind.
