HC Deb 22 June 1943 vol 390 c1027W
Major Conant

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is satisfied that the recently increased prices of tyre wire, as proposed by the Wire Association, are justified, as a large number of suppliers were entirely satisfied with the old prices, and as identical wire is being produced in America, where labour costs are more than double, at less than the old prices?

Mr. Peat

There has been no increase in the controlled maximum price of tyre wire, but prices of iron and steel wire as a whole are at present under review.
