HC Deb 29 May 1941 vol 371 cc2020-1W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he can state the latest controlled prices for roasting and boiling chickens; and whether these prices are being enforced in the country as well as in the towns?

Major Lloyd George

The current maximum prices for both roasting chickens and boiling fowls are at the rate of 1s. 6d. per pound on a sale by the producer to a wholesaler, 1s. 7d. per pound on a sale by wholesale, and 1s. 10d. per pound on a sale by retail. These prices are being enforced everywhere, but present control arrangements are continually under review and more effective measures to prevent evasion are under examination.
