§ Mr. RAMSDEN
asked the Minister of Food whether it is his intention to compensate the co-operative societies and others who, before the 29th of November when he reduced the price of flour by 4s. a sack, held a stock of flour which must now be sold, owing to Government orders, at a loss?2458W
§ Mr. McCURDY
With regard to the position of retailers, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given yesterday to the hon. Member for Morpeth (Mr. Cairns). With regard to the position of wholesalers whose sales remain subject to maximum prices, I am considering the possibility of dealing with individual cases of proved hardship.
