HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 c462W
Sir R. Gower

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether one of the duties of the Central Price Regulation Committee will be to decide how many times war risks insurance premiums have, in passing from the manufacturer to the consumer, been added to the cost of the article eventually sold?

Mr. Stanley

The Central Price Regulation Committee are charged with the duty of supervising the operations of the local committees. In considering any complaint concerning price-regulated goods, it will be for the committees to decide whether the cost of war risks insurance has been made an excuse for an excessive increase in price.
