HC Deb 21 February 1973 vol 851 c467
21. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what machinery he has established in the Scottish Office to implement the control function of the Price Commission.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

None, Sir. The need for such machinery is for the commission to assess.

Mr. Dalyell

How is it that the Secretary of State for Employment can reveal that he has the nucleus of the proposed Pay Board when there is no sign of an embryo Price Commission?

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

The Price Commission is not the direct responsibility of my right hon. Friend.

Mr. William Price

Or of anyone else.
