§ Mr. THORNE
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the price of bread has increased by one halfpenny per quartern loaf since Monday last; that a further increase is expected; and if he will refer the matter to the Food Council?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
Yes, Sir. The matter is already before the Food Council, and I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the President of the Board of Trade to the hon. Member for East Willesden (Mr. D. G. Somerville) on 9th July, a copy of which I am sending him.
