HC Deb 30 June 1915 vol 72 c1814W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in order to help the poorer classes to ascertain whether fair prices are being charged by retail tradesmen, he will, after consultation with the several associations representing retailers of meat, bread, fish, groceries, and coal, cause to be published each week or oftener if need be, in public places, a list of fair prices to be charged for such articles?


My right hon. Friend will see what can be done to give the public guidance as to fair prices for some of the articles named in the question.
