HC Deb 06 October 1942 vol 383 c1084W
Major Lyons

asked the President of the Board of Trade why there is no controlled price on teapots at manufacture and upon the larger types of teacups, respectively?

Mr. Dalton

Manufacturers' prices of teapots and the larger type of teacups are controlled and are limited to the manufacturer's price on 1st June last or the cost of manufacture plus 6 per cent., whichever is the lower; wholesalers' and retailers' margins are also fixed.
