§ 59. Mr. Piratin
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the letter sent to him from the national co-operative authority stating that the cooperative movement is working out a schedule of price reductions which they will voluntarily introduce; and what answer he has given.
§ Mr. Piratin
I should like to ask my hon. Friend, first, whether he proposes to take any steps to encourage other traders to follow this example; and, secondly, whether he will ensure through his colleagues a greater distribution of goods for the co-operative societies so that they may reduce prices to the consumer?
