HC Deb 28 May 1941 vol 371 cc1869-70W
Captain Lyons

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to the findings of the South-West Scotland Food Price Investigation Committee, to the effect that their reports on cases of food profiteering are not dealt with and that they are denied powers to prosecute in investigated cases; whether he will now take steps to invest local committees with power to protect the public in examined instances; and whether he will make a statement on the findings of this Committee?

Major Lloyd George

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative and to the second and third parts in the negative.
