HC Deb 30 June 1919 vol 117 c626W

asked the Food Controller whether, taking into consideration the hope that peace will soon be established amongst the nations of Central Europe and our Allies, and that in consequence there will be an increased demand throughout the world for foodstuffs, ho will fix the prices of all foodstuffs and thus control the prices from the time the article is sold by the importer to the time such article is sold to the consumer?


So long as there is an actual or prospective shortage of supplies I shall continue to regulate the prices of essential foodstuffs either by Statutory Order or by agreement with the trades concerned.
