HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1526
56. Mr. Martin

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been drawn to the large number of firms through which foodstuffs now frequently pass between the manufacturer or packer and the retailer, each transaction involving an increment in price for the consumer; and what steps he proposes to take to bring this practice under control?

Major Lloyd George

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on this matter to my hon. Friend the Member for Dumbartonshire (Mr. McKinlay) on 2nd December, 1941.
