§ Mr. MOSLEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many control Orders issued by the late Ministry of Food are still operative; and when it is proposed to decontrol the articles subject to these Orders?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
There are still operative 43 Orders under the Ministry of Food (Continuance) Act, a number of which will be revoked on the termination of the present emergency. Beer and spirits are the only articles of which the prices are still controlled, and the retention of these Orders is at present under consideration.
