HC Deb 16 January 1945 vol 407 c64W
Colonel Medlicott

asked the Minister of Agriculture if, in order to avoid the possibility of a later misunderstanding, he will give an assurance that it is the policy of the Government that, whenever wages and other agricultural costs increase, prices will be adjusted upwards automatically.

Mr. T. Williams

No, Sir. On the contrary my right hon. Friend in the statement which he made in the House on 5th December made it quite clear that there will be no automatic adjustment of prices in the event of wages or other agricultural costs increasing.
