HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 c2079W
Brigadier-General CROFT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, having regard to the Order prohibiting the use of tradesmen's catalogues and circulars, and the fact that traders now have no other medium of advertisement than the newspapers, he can see his way to prevent newspapers from raising the charges for advertisements?


As at present advised, I do not think it necessary to take action in the direction suggested.
