HC Deb 10 April 1946 vol 421 cc316-7W
Mr. T. Macpherson

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that official ceiling prices for dry South American cattle hides were advanced two weeks ago by 20-25 per cent. and that, despite repeated requests for a similar revision in prices for British Empire hides, no information can be obtained; and when an announcement on this matter will be made.

Mr. Belcher:

No further increases in the prices of Empire hides are in contemplation at present.
