HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1829W

asked the Food Controller whether he is aware that in Nottingham the prices of fresh fruit are so high as to make it impossible for those who have bought sugar for the purpose to make jam; that the Food Control Committee of Nottingham would welcome the control of prices of fresh fruit; and will he consider the advisability of taking this step immediately?

Captain COOTE

asked the Food Controller whether it is his intention to control fruit prices in the current year?


No complaints with regard to the price of fruit in Nottingham have been received by the Ministry and no recommendation on the subject has been made by the local Food Control Committee. It is not proposed to control the price of soft fruits, but the maximum prices of stone fruits used by jam manufacturers will shortly be fixed. The price of apples is already controlled.
