§ 44. Mr. MANDER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that, as a result of the Government's restrictions on bacon imports, the price of bacon has risen 3d. per pound; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I am aware that the price of bacon is now higher than it was before measures were taken to regulate imports. I would remind the hon. Member that, as has frequently been explained to the House, those measures were expressly designed to secure an improvement in wholesale prices.
