HC Deb 08 February 1945 vol 407 cc2230-1
55. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give an assurance that the Government have now under review the question of the margin between the food prices of this country and the food prices overseas with a view to ensuring the retention of the home markets for the home producers in the post-war period.

Mr. Hudson

Yes, Sir. The Government have these matters under review.

Mr. De la Bète

But will my right hon. Friend, in addition to having it under review, ask the Government to raise their thoughts to the heights of the situation with which they are confronted, and thereafter take action, without which all these thoughts are in vain?
