HC Deb 15 November 1939 vol 353 cc716-7
73. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade what: steps he is taking to put into operation the provisions of the Prices of Goods Bill?

Major Lloyd George

The Prices of Goods Bill has not yet received the Royal Assent. My right hon. Friend is making arrangements, however, to ensure that as soon as this is given no time will be lost in proceeding with the appointment of the Central and Local Price Regulation Committees and in issuing an Order applying the Act to a number of goods which are most commonly used by the population in general. Meanwhile, I am glad to be able to tell the House that Mr. Raymond Evershed, K.C., has consented to act as Chairman of the Central Price Regulation Committee when it is set up.
