HC Deb 19 July 1923 vol 166 cc2528-9W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the recommendation of the Departmental Committee on distribution and prices of agricultural produce, he proposes to take any steps to improve existing conditions at Covent Garden market; and whether, having regard to the general complaints as to the magnitude and incidence of the market charges there, and their alleged illegality, he will direct an inquiry to be held?


I am giving consideration to this question, but the matter is one of considerable complexity, and I cannot make any statement on the matter at present.
