HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 cc1313-4W

asked the Food Controller what steps he is prepared to take to control the selling price of all commodities produced in the British Isles?


I am not in a position to make a statement as to commodities other than foodstuffs. The profits on essential foodstuffs are limited by the lining of prices at every stage of production and distribution. As regards other articles of food which are not subject to a complete scheme of price control, proposals for extending at an early date the powers of food control committees are under consideration.
