HC Deb 12 December 1939 vol 355 cc999-1000
15. Miss Ward

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the necessity for the equitable treatment of all interests in price control, whether he intends to establish machinery which would enable the retailer to appeal against the increase of prices by the wholesaler where he considers it unjustified?

Mr. Stanley

In the case of goods to which the Prices of Goods Act may be applied, it will be open to the retailer to complain to a price regulation committee about an increase of the price charged to him by a wholesaler.
