HC Deb 20 March 1917 vol 92 c617W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the prices for wheat, oats, and potatoes guaranteed by the Government for the produce of the six years stated by the Prime Minister are minimum prices; and whether the producers will be permitted to sell their crops to the highest bidder subject to any maximum prices which it may hereafter be decided to fix?


I must ask the hon. Member to await the introduction of the Bill, which will supply him with detailed information on the points raised in his question.
