52. Mr. E. Martin Smith
asked the Minister of Agriculture when the report of the February price review can be expected.
§ 55. Mr. Lambert
asked the Minister of Agriculture on what dates since 1948 the guaranteed prices for farm produce were announced; and when he proposes to announce them this year.
§ Mr. G. Brown
In 1949 and 1950 guaranteed prices were announced on 17th and 23rd March respectively. The current review is not yet concluded, but my right hon. Friend hopes to announce the Government's decisions about future prices within a few days.
§ Mr. A. Lewis
Has my hon. Friend received information whether, in the event of an increase in the prices, the 2579 Opposition will start a "phoney" campaign for a reduction of prices, as they have done in other matters?
