HC Deb 26 February 1919 vol 112 cc1762-3W
Lieutenant-Colonel WEIGALL

asked the Food Controller what is the maximum price which a poultry producer can now obtain for produce; whether auctioneers can be granted wholesalers' or retailers' licences; and what is the maximum price for poultry now chargeable by retailers?


The maximum prices which the poultry producer may obtain for his produce are governed by the Poultry and Game (Prices) Order, 1918, of which I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy. Apart from his auctioneer's licence, an auctioneer does not require any special licence for the sale of poultry either by wholesale or retail. The maxi- mum price for poultry now chargeable by retailers is also shown in the schedule to the Order referred to.
