§ Mr. HARDIE
asked the hon. Member for Cheltenham, as Chairman of the Kitchen and Refreshment Rooms Committee why it is necessary to charge 4d. for an orange and 3d. for a banana?
§ Sir J. AGG-GARDNER
It was necessary to make the charges complained of for oranges and bananas in consequence of the wholesale prices prevailing at the time, which left a very small margin to cover the expenses incidental to retail supply.
