HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 cc1252-3W
Mr. De la Bére

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will fix a maximum price of 8s. a cwt. for seed-wheat, since the numerous cases of inflated prices now being charged for seed-wheat are preventing farmers from carrying out their sowing of winter wheat?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

In view of the many different kinds and qualities of seed-wheat, it is not practicable to fix a maximum price which would effectively control the price. Other measures are, however, under consideration.
