HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c257W
86. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Food if he will inquire into the high charges for bed and breakfast in certain London hotels; and if he will take powers to control such charges.

Dr. Summerskill

I will gladly look into this matter if my hon. Friend will let me have details of alleged overcharging. If the Government have evidence of widespread overcharging they will certainly consider how best to stop this kind of abuse.
